Properties of SHE

Superheavy elements in the framework of SkM* HFB theory

Properties of SHE vs. deformation Q2


The results presented here were originally posted at "" and were obtained in cooperation with A. Staszczak (UMCS Lublin, PL) and W. Nazarewicz (ORNL Oak Ridge, USA).

There are shown properties of some superheavy nuclei in the region Z=108-126 and N=148-188 as a function of deformation q20. We are using the Skyrme SkM* force and the following definition of the quadrupole moment: q20 = Σ< x2 + y2 - 2z2>.


[q20] = barn; [Energy] = MeV; [Mass parameter] = hbar/(MeV b2); [Moment of inertia] = hbar/MeV; [rms radii] = fm; [Half life, T] = year.

Mass parameters were calculated from cranking formula in HFB basis. The HFB energy (potential) was corrected for zero point energy (zpe(.

You can clear the plot (click the Clear button) and display the single curve for a given isotopic chain Z by clicking the corresponding name of data serie in the LEGEND of the chart. Pointing on a curve you can get the exact numbers for a given data point in a Tooltip window.

Cicking on a label in the legend of the chart one can switch the series off or on. With a mouse pointer, the zooming is performed by dragging out a rectangle in the chart.
