Shape Coexistence in Hot Rotating 100Nb

Abstract:

Temperature and angular momentum induced shape changes in the well deformed 100Nb have been investigated within the theoretical framework of Statistical theory combined with triaxially deformed Nilson potential and Strutinsky prescription. Two shape coexistence, one in the ground state of 104Nb between oblate and triaxial shapes and another one between oblate and rarely seen prolate non-collective shapes in excited hot rotating 100Nb at the mid spin values around 14-16h are reported for the first time. The level density parameter indicates the influence of the shell effects and changes drastically at the shape transition. The band crossing is observed at the sharp shape transition.
