New structure information on Mg-30, Mg-31 and Mg-32
Paper i proceeding, 2005
The fast timing beta gamma gamma(t) method was applied to investigate the level lifetimes in Mg-30,Mg-31,Mg-32. Levels in Mg have been populated in beta and beta-delayed neutron emission of Na, at the ISOLDE facility. From the gamma gamma coincidences a number of new states have been identified and new level schemes were constructed for 30 31,32 Mg. The following preliminary half lives have been determined: T-1/2 = 3.9(4) ns for the 1789 keV state in Mg-30, T-1/2 = 133(8) ps and 10.5(8) us for the 221 keV and 461 keV states in Mg-31, respectively, and T1/2 = 16(4) ps for the 885 keV level in 32Mg. The 1789 keV level was established as a candidate for the intruder 0(+) configuration in Mg-30 with a possible strong E0 branch to the ground state.
