Excitation Energies of Superdeformed States in $^{196}$Pb: Towards a Systematic Study of the Second Well in Pb Isotopes

Abstract : The excitation energy of the lowest-energy superdeformed band in $^{196}$Pb is established using the techniques of time-correlated $\gamma$-ray spectroscopy. Together with previous measurements on $^{192}$Pb and $^{194}$Pb, this result allows superdeformed excitation energies, binding energies, and two-proton and two-neutron separation energies to be studied systematically, providing stringent tests for current nuclear models. The results are examined for evidence of a "superdeformed shell gap."
