Abstract

The lifetimes of 9 states in 63Cu up to an excitation energy of 2092 keV have been determined by means of the Doppler-shift attenuation method using the 60Ni(α, pγ) reaction. A search was made for a suitable set of M1 and E2 single-particle matrix elements for use with shell-model eigenstates throughout the Ni, Cu and Zn isotopes. The theoretical predictions for the level spectroscopy and electromagnetic transitions and static moments in 63Cu are in satisfactory agreement with the experimental findings. © 1980.
