$\beta$ decay of the exotic $T_z$ = -2 nuclei $^{48}$Fe, $^{52}$Ni and $^{56}$Zn

Abstract : The results of a study of the beta decays of three proton-rich nuclei having $T_z$ = -2, namely $^{48}$Fe, $^{52}$Ni and $^{56}$Zn, produced in an experiment carried out at GANIL, are reported. In all the cases we have extracted the half-lives and the total $\beta$-delayed proton emission branching ratios. We have measured the individual $\beta$-delayed protons and $\beta$-delayed $\gamma$ rays with their branching ratios. Decay schemes have been determined for the three nuclei, and new energy levels are identified in the corresponding daughter nuclei. Competition between $\beta$-delayed protons and gammas is observed in the de-excitation of the $T$ = 2 Isobaric Analogue States in all three cases. Absolute Fermi and Gamow-Teller transition strengths have been determined. The mass excesses of the nuclei under study have been deduced. In addition, we discuss in detail the data analysis taking as a test case $^{56}$Zn, where the exotic $\beta$-delayed $\gamma$-proton decay has been observed.
