The nuclear g factor and quadrupole moment (Qs) have been measured for the low-lying isomeric 1+ state of 34Al, using the β-detected nuclear magnetic resonance (β-NMR) and quadrupole resonance (β-NQR) methods. Spin-polarized 34Al isotopes were produced in a one-neutron pickup reaction induced by a 36S beam on a 9Be target at a kinetic energy of 77.5 MeV/nucleon, and were collected with the LISE fragment separator at GANIL. The measured g factor (|g| in a range of 1.757±0.014) and quadrupole moment (|Qs|=38(5) mb) are in good agreement with shell-model calculations using effective interactions. The similarity between the g factor of 34mAl and that of 32Al confirms a dominant neutron 2p1h configuration π(d5/2)−1⊗ν(d3/2)−1(f7/2)2 of 34mAl. In addition, the enhanced quadrupole moment of 34mAl relative to that of 32Al suggests that the neutron 1p1h excitation across the N=20 shell gap introduces extra nucleon–nucleon correlation and deformation.
