Observation of fine structure in 190Pb α decay
The α decay of mass separated 190Pb was studied at the UNISOR on-line facility and fine structure was observed, feeding the 2+1 and 0+2 states in 186Hg identified previously in β-decay and in-beam γ-ray studies. The hindrance factor of the α decay to the excited 0+2 state in 186Hg is similar to that observed in 182,184Hg. The variation of the hindrance factor to the 2+1 states in 182,184,186Hg is discussed.
