Abstract:

The internal conversion coefficients of the 0.164, 0.272 and 0.484 MeV gamma rays of Ni56 have been determined utilizing a scintillation gamma ray spectrometer and a Siegbahn-Satis intermediate-image beta-ray spectrometer. Respective conversion coefficients of 0.12 0.001, 0.0034 0.0002 and 0.0015 0.00015 were found. Comparison with theoretical conversion coefficients expected for pure multipole transitions and use of the Weisskopf single-particle estimates for the gammaray transition probabilities lend considerable support to an analysis of the low-excited states of Co56 in terms of a simple shell model for an odd nucleus.
