Abstract

The γ-rays following reactions induced by bombarding targets of 114, 116, 118, 120, 122Sn with 118 MeV 12C ions were investigated using six NaI(Tl) detectors in a two-dimensional coincidence arrangement. Experimental energy-correlation spectra were extracted from the original coincidence matrices. The energy-correlation spectra exhibit the features expected for rotational nuclei and were used to deduce information on the moment of inertia I(2) = ΔI/Δω. The gross properties of the behaviour of I(2) in the Ba-Xe region are discussed together with their interpretation within the cranked shell model (CSM).
