Mirror asymmetry investigated by β decay of proton-rich 24Si

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The β-decay spectroscopy on 24Si was carried out in order to investigate characteristic properties of proton-rich nuclei from a perspective of mirror asymmetry. We observed two β transitions to low-lying bound states in 24Al for the first time. The B(GT) of 24Si were deduced to be 0.13(2) and 0.14(2), which were smaller than those of the mirror transition by 22(11)% and 10(8)%, respectively. Through the comparison with theoretical calculations taking into account the Coulomb force and the Thomas-Ehrman shift, the mirror asymmetry of B(GT) is attributed to the lowering of the proton 1s1/2 orbital.
