Abstract

We have produced element 106 by bombarding Cf249 with O18 ions accelerated by the SuperHILAC. The new nuclide 106263, produced by the (O18, 4n) reaction, is shown to decay by α emission with a half-life of 0.9±0.2 sec and a principal α energy of 9.06±0.04 MeV to the known nuclide Rf259, which in turn is shown to decay to the known nuclide No255.
