Spectroscopy on the proton drip-line: Probing the structure dependence of isospin nonconserving interactions

Abstract : The recoil-β tagging technique was used to identify transitions associated with the decay of the 2 + and, tentatively, the 4 + excited states in 74 Sr. Combining these results with published data for the A = 74 isobars, triplet energy differences (TEDs) have been extracted, the heaviest case for which these values have been evaluated. State-of-the-art shell-model calculations using the JUN45 interaction and incorporating a J = 0 isospin nonconserving (INC) interaction with an isotensor strength of 100 keV can reproduce the trend in the TED data, with particularly good agreement for the 2 + state. This agreement for the TED data taken together with the fact that agreement has also been shown between shell-model calculations with the same strength of INC interaction in the f 7/2 shell and recently for A = 66 strongly suggests that such an interaction exists throughout the nuclear chart and cannot have a strong dependence on details of nuclear structure such as which nuclear orbitals are occupied. It also supports the hypothesis that only a J = 0 component of the INC interaction need be included to explain the observed TEDs.
