Superheavy-element spectroscopy: Correlations along element 115 decay chains
Department of Physics, Lund University, 22100 Lund, Sweden
Published online: 11 May 2016
Following a brief summary of the region of the heaviest atomic nuclei yet created in the laboratory, data on more than hundred α-decay chains associated with the production of element 115 are combined to investigate time and energy correlations along the observed decay chains. Several of these are analysed using a new method for statistical assessments of lifetimes in sets of decay chains.
