Abstract

The wobbling excitations of the triaxial superdeformed (TSD) bands in the Lu and Hf region are studied by the microscopic framework of the cranked mean-field and the randomphase approximation (RPA). In contrast to the previous works, where the Nilsson potential was used, the more realistic Woods-Saxon potential is employed as a nuclear mean-field. It is pointed out that the original formulation should be slightly modified for general meanfield like the Woods-Saxon potential. The wobbling-like RPA solutions have been found systematically in the nuclei studied and their characteristic properties are investigated in detail. This confirms the wobbling phonon excitations in TSD nuclei from the microscopic calculations. The result of B(E2) values indicates that the triaxial deformation is increasing as a function of spin in the observed TSD bands in 163Lu.
