Simons, A.J., Wadsworth, R., Jenkins, D.G. et al. (13 more authors) (2003) Evidence for a New Type of Shears Mechanism in 106Cd. Physical Review Letters, 91 (16). 162501-4 PAGES. ISSN 1079-7114
Lifetimes of states in the lowest lying positive parity band in 106Cd have been measured using the Doppler shift attenuation method. The deduced B(E2) transition rates show a marked decrease with increasing spin. Cranking and semiclassical model calculations suggest that the structure has the character of a shears-type band resulting from the coupling of g9/2 proton holes to aligned pairs of h11/2 and g7/2 neutron particles. This is the first clear evidence for the phenomenon of “antimagnetic” rotation in nuclei.
