Electric and Magnetic Dipole Strength at Low Energy

Electric and Magnetic Dipole Strength at Low Energy A low-energy enhancement of radiative strength functions was deduced from recent experiments in several mass regions of nuclei, which is believed to impact considerably the calculated neutron capture rates. In this Letter we investigate the behavior of the low-energy γ-ray strength of the Sc44 isotope, for the first time taking into account both electric and magnetic dipole contributions obtained coherently in the same theoretical approach. The calculations are performed using the large-scale shell-model framework in a full 1ℏω  sd-pf-gds model space. Our results corroborate previous theoretical findings for the low-energy enhancement of the M1 strength but show quite different behavior for the E1 strength. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review Letters American Physical Society (APS)
