Antimagnetic rotation band in nuclei: A microscopic description
Covariant density functional theory and the tilted axis cranking method are used to investigate antimagnetic rotation (AMR) in nuclei for the first time in a fully self-consistent and microscopic way. The experimental spectrum as well as the B(E2) values of the recently observed AMR band in Cd105 are reproduced very well. This gives a further strong hint that AMR is realized in specific bands in nuclei. © 2011 American Physical Society.
