- Conference date: 10–14 September 2007
- Location: Crete (Greece)
The talk will focus on spin‐dependent competition between oblate and prolate shape minima in the potential energy landscape of (the most neutron‐rich stable isotope), mediated via the alignment of valence nucleons. Results of a prompt spectroscopic study, using deep inelastic reactions with Gammasphere and CHICO, bombarding a thin target with a beam above the Coulomb barrier, will be presented. Nucleon alignments in both prolate and oblate minima will be discussed, as well as the favoring of oblate collective rotation at high spins, observed through a mixing with gamma vibrations built on the prolate shape.
