Proton decay from the isoscalar giant dipole resonance in 58Ni

Abstract : Proton decay from the 3¯hω isoscalar giant dipole resonance (ISGDR) in 58Ni has been measured using the (α, α p) reaction at a bombarding energy of 386MeV to investigate its decay properties. We have extracted the ISGDR strength under the coincidence condition between inelastically scattered α particles at forward angles and decay protons emitted at backward angles. Branching ratios for proton decay to low-lying states of 57Co have been determined, and the results comparedwith predictions of recent continuum-RPAcalculations. The final-state spectra of protons decaying to the low-lying states in 57Co were analyzed for a more detailed understanding of the structure of the ISGDR. It is found that there are differences in the structure of the ISGDR as a function of excitation energy.
