Levels in 106Ru and 108Ru
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1980
The decay schemes of 36 s 106Tc and 5 s 108Tc have been studied with γ-ray singles and γ-γ coincidence measurements. To separate the technetium nuclides from the fission products of 239Pu, an on-line chemical separation procedure has been developed which is based on multistep chemical separations of liquid phases by fast-rotating centrifuges (“SISAK”). The resulting level schemes of 106Ru and 108Ru, together with those of 102Ru and 104Ru, are interpreted in terms of the generalized collective model of Gneuss and Greiner. The potential-energy surfaces calculated from the spectroscopic data show a trend towards triaxial shapes for the very neutron-rich Ru nuclei.
