Possible interpretation of configuration dependent deformation in odd-A transitional nuclei in the mass 100 region
A recently proposed formalism which relates the n-p interaction strength to the product of the number of valence neutrons and protons (Nn*Np) is extended to the odd-A nuclei in the A ~ 100 region. The data suggest that the effective n-p force depends on the configuration (πp1/2 or πg9/2).I would like to express my appreciation to Dr. R.P. Schmitt for his valuable comments and reading the manuscript and Dr. R.F. Casten for discussion and encouragement during this work.
