Asymmetry of Mirror γ Decays in C13 and N13

Phys. Rev. Lett. 35, 1546 – Published 1 December 1975
D. Kurath


An explanation is offered for the large difference in B(E1) values of mirror transitions from ½+ state to the ground state, based on the difference in binding energy of the ½+ states. The binding energy determines the degree of coupling of the positive parity nucleon to the deformed C12 core, which in turn affects the B(E1) value. The experimental asymmetry can be satisfied with a small change of the wave function.
