The highly forbidden β− decay of 48Ca is reexamined by performing shell-model calculations with the GXPF1A effective interaction. We examine the three available decay branches to the lowest 6+, 5+, and 4+ states of 48Sc, and extract a theoretical half-life of T β 1/2 = 5.2+1.7 −1.3 × 1020 g−2 A yr for the β− decay, where gA is the value of the axial-vector coupling constant. The current half-life estimate suggests stronger competition between the single-β-decay and double-β-decay branches of 48Ca than previously expected on theoretical grounds.

(American Physical Society, 2015)Background: Shell-model calculations crucially depend on the residual interaction used to approximate the nucleon-nucleon interaction. Recent improvements to the empirical universal sd interaction (USD) describing nuclei ...
Muon-electron lepton-flavor-violating transitions : Shell-model calculations of transitions in 27Al Kostensalo, Joel; Suhonen, Jouni; Civitarese, O. (American Physical Society, 2018)In this paper we present the results of large-scale shell-model calculations of muon-to-electron lepton-flavorviolating transitions for the case of the target nucleus 27Al. We extend the previous shell-model calculations, done ...
Shell-model study on event rates of lightest supersymmetric particles scattering off 83Kr and 125Te Pirinen, Pekka; Srivastava, P. C.; Suhonen, Jouni; Kortelainen, Markus (American Physical Society, 2016)We investigate the elastic and inelastic scattering of lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) dark matter off two possible target nuclei, 83Kr and 125Te. For the nuclear-structure calculations, we employ the nuclear shell ...
Xayavong, L.; Smirnova, N. A.; Bender, M.; Bennaceur, Karim (Jagiellonian University, 2017)We investigate the radial-overlap part of the isospin-symmetry breaking correction to superallowed 0 + → 0 + β decay. The 8 sd-shell emitters with masses between A = 22 and A = 38 have been re-examined. The Fermi ...
