Sizeable beta-strength in Ar-31 (beta 3p) decay
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2014
We present for the first time precise spectroscopic information on the recently discovered decay mode beta-delayed 3p-emission. The detection of the 3p events gives an increased sensitivity to the high energy part of the Gamow-Teller strength distribution from the decay of Ar-31 revealing that as much as 30% of the strength resides in the beta 3p-decaymode. A simplified description of how the main decay modes evolve as the excitation energy increases in Cl-31 is provided.
