Spectroscopy of 32Ne and the “Island of Inversion”

Abstract : We report on the first spectroscopic study of the N=22 nucleus 32Ne at the newly completed RIKEN Radioactive Ion Beam Factory. A single gamma-ray line with an energy of 722(9) keV was observed in both inelastic scattering of a 226 MeV/u 32Ne beam on a carbon target and proton removal from 33Na at 245 MeV/u. This transition is assigned to the deexcitation of the first Jpi=2+ state in 32Ne to the 0+ ground state. Interpreted through comparison with state-of-the-art shell-model calculations, the low excitation energy demonstrates that the “island of inversion” extends to at least N=22 for the Ne isotopes.
