Shape fluctuations in the ground and excited0+states of30,32,34Mg
Physical Review C
Large-amplitude collective dynamics of shape phase transition in the low-lying states of 30-36Mg is investigated by solving the five-dimensional (5D) quadrupole collective Schroedinger equation. The collective masses and potentials of the 5D collective Hamiltonian are microscopically derived with use of the constrained Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov plus local quasiparticle RPA method. Good agreement with the recent experimental data is obtained for the excited 0+ states as well as the ground bands.
... r 30Mg, the shape coexistence picture that the deformed excited 0+ state coexists with the spherical ground state approximately holds. On the other hand, large-amplitude quadrupole-shape fluctuations dominate in both the ground and the excited 0+ states in 32Mg, so that the interpretation of 'coexisting spherical excited 0+ state' based on the naive inversion picture of the spherical and deformed configurations does not hold.
