Abstract [en]

Lifetime measurements of excited states in Nd-149 have been performed using the advanced time-delayed beta gamma gamma(t) method. Half-lives of 14 excited states in Nd-149 have been determined for the first time or measured with higher precision. Twelve new gamma-lines and 5 new levels have been introduced into the decay scheme of Pr-149 based on results of the gamma gamma coincidence measurements. Reduced transition probabilities have been determined for 40 gamma-transitions in Nd-149. Configuration assignments for 6 rotational bands in Nd-149 are proposed. Enhanced E1 transitions indicate that the ground-state band and the band built on the 332.9 keV level constitute a pair of the K-pi = 5/2(+/-) parity doublet bands. Potential energy surfaces on the (beta(2),beta(3))-plane have been calculated for the lowest single quasi-particle configurations in Nd-149 using the Strutinski method and the axially deformed Woods-Saxon potential. The predicted occurrence of the octupole-deformed K = 5/2 configuration is in agreement with experiment. Unexpectedly low vertical bar D-0 vertical bar values obtained for the K-pi = 5/2(+/-) parity doublet bands may result from cancellation between the proton and neutron shell correction contributions to vertical bar D-0 vertical bar.
