Excited states have been identified in the heaviest known even-Z isotone 158W, which lies in a region of one-proton emitters and the two-proton drip line. The observation of γ-ray transitions feeding the ground state establishes the excitation energy of the yrast 6+ state confirming the spin-gap nature of the α-decaying 8+ isomer. The 8+ isomer is also expected to be unbound to two-proton emission but no evidence for this decay mode was observed. An upper limit for the two-proton decay branch has been deduced as 0.17% at the 90% confidence level. The possibility of observing two-proton emission from multiparticle isomers in nearby nuclides is considered.

Dependence of two-proton radioactivity on nuclear pairing models Oishi, Tomohiro; Kortelainen, Markus; Pastore, Alessandro (American Physical Society, 2017)Sensitivity of two-proton emitting decay to nuclear pairing correlation is discussed within a time-dependent three-body model. We focus on the 6Be nucleus assuming α+p+p configuration, and its decay process is described ...

(American Physical Society, 2014)A multiparticle spin-trap isomer has been discovered in the proton-unbound nucleus 158 73Ta85. The isomer mainly decays by γ-ray emission with a half-life of 6.1ð1Þ μs. Analysis of the γ-ray data shows that the isomer ...
