Spectroscopic Study of Neutron Shell Closures via Nucleon Transfer in the Near-Dripline Nucleus $^{23}$O

Abstract : Neutron single particle energies have been measured in 23O using the 22O(d,p)23O*-->22O+n process. The energies of the resonant states have been deduced to be 4.00(2) MeV and 5.30(4) MeV. The first excited state can be assigned to the nud3/2 single particle state from a comparison with shell model calculations. The measured 4.0 MeV energy difference between the nus1/2 and nud3/2 states gives the size of the N=16 shell gap which is in agreement with the recent USD05 (“universal” sd from 2005) shell model calculation, and is large enough to explain the unbound nature of the oxygen isotopes heavier than A=24. The resonance detected at 5.3 MeV can be assigned to a state out of the sd shell model space. Its energy corresponds to a ~1.3 MeV sized N=20 shell gap, therefore, the N=20 shell closure disappears at Z=8 in agreement with Monte Carlo shell model calculations using SDPF-M interaction.
