Abstract

To study the Gamow-Teller (GT) transitions to the pf-shell nucleus Cu64, the Ni64(He3,t)Cu64 experiment was performed at the Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP) Ring Cyclotron, Osaka, using a He3 beam of 140 MeV/nucleon. The outgoing tritons were momentum analyzed by the Grand Raiden spectrometer at 0°. A high energy resolution of 32 keV (full width at half-maximum) allowed the separation of individual levels in the excitation-energy region from 0 to 3.5 MeV. In addition to the ground state (gs), known to be a Jπ=1+ GT state, many low-lying states showed L=0 nature, suggesting that they are candidates for GT states. Because the GT strength B(GT) for the gs transition is known from the β-decay measurement, the strengths for the excited states could be determined using the proportionality between the B(GT) and the reaction cross section extrapolated to q=0 momentum transfer. At higher excitation energies, the level density becomes high and the so-called GT giant resonance dominates the spectrum. The lower and the upper limits of the strength contained in this energy region were estimated. Our results show that less than 55% of the strength predicted by the Ikeda sum rule is located in the excitation-energy region from 0 to 17 MeV.
