ABSTRACT Neutron-rich lead and bismuth isotopes have been produced by cold-fragmentation reactions induced by 238U projectiles at 1A GeV impinging on a beryllium target. The high-resolving power FRagment Separator (FRS) at GSI allowed
us to identify and determine the production cross-sections of 43 nuclei, nine of them for the first time ( 216, 217, 218, 219Pb and 219, 220, 221, 222, 223Bi . These data are compared to other previously measured cross-sections in similar reactions and model calculations.

    ABSTRACT: The production of heavy neutron-rich nuclei has been investigated using cold-fragmentation reactions of U238 projectiles at relativistic energies. The experiment performed at the high-resolving-power magnetic spectrometer Fragment Separator at GSI made it possible to identify 40 new heavy neutron-rich nuclei: Pt205, Au207-210, Hg211-216, Tl214-217, Pb215-220, Bi219-224, Po223-227, At225-229, Rn230,231, and Fr233. The production cross sections of these nuclei were also determined and used to benchmark reaction codes that predict the production of nuclei far from stability.

    ABSTRACT: The evaluated spectroscopic data are presented for 11 known nuclides of mass 211 (Hg, Tl, Pb, Bi, Po, At, Rn, Fr, Ra, Ac, Th). The 211Pa nuclide is included here but its identification remains uncertain. For 211Hg, 211Tl, 211Ac and 211Th nuclei, only the ground-state information is available. Their decay characteristics are mostly unknown. 211Fr is suggested to decay partially through ɛ decay mode, but its decay scheme remains poorly known. While high-spin excitations, including several isomers, are well studied in 211Pb, 211Bi, 211Po, 211At, 211Rn and 211Fr, the particle-transfer data are available for only 211Po and 211Bi.This evaluation was carried out as part of joint IAEA-ICTP workshop for Nuclear Structure and Decay Data, organized and hosted by the IAEA, Vienna and ICTP, Trieste, August 6-17, 2012. This work supersedes previous A=211 evaluation (2004Br45) published by E. Browne which covered literature before January 2003.

    ABSTRACT: The evaluated spectroscopic data are presented for 12 known nuclides of mass 215 (Hg, Tl, Pb, Bi, Po, At, Rn, Fr, Ra, Ac, Th, Pa). For 215Hg, 215Tl, 215Pb, and 215Pa nuclei, no excited states are known. The decay characteristics of 215Hg and 215Tl are unknown. The decay scheme of 215Pb is considered as incomplete. Ordering of γ cascades in the decay of 36.9–s isomer of 215Bi and for high–spin states above 2251 keV in 215Fr are not established. High–spin excitations, including several isomeric states, are well known in 215Bi, 215Po, 215Rn, 215Fr, 215Ra, and 215Ac. No particle–transfer reaction data are available for any of the A=215 nuclei. The rms charge radii for 215Pb, 215Bi, 215Po, 215Rn, 215Fr and 215Ra have been evaluated by Daniel Abriola, from extrapolation or interpolation of available evaluated data in 2013An02 for radii of respective Z chains using formula 9 in 2004An14. This evaluation was carried out as part of ENSDD–workshop at VECC, Kolkata for Nuclear Structure and Decay Data, organized and hosted by VECC and Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS) in Kolkata, India, November 26–29, 2012. This work supersedes the previous A = 215 evaluation (2001Br31) published by E. Browne which covered literature prior to May 2001.
