Isotope Shift Measurements Using K X-Rays in Sn, Sm, and W


Chesler, Ronald Benjamin (1967) Isotope Shift Measurements Using K X-Rays in Sn, Sm, and W. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/6BHF-1462.


Electronic Kαl x-ray isotope shifts have been measured for Sn 116-124, Sm 148-154, W 182-184, W 184-186, and W 182-186 using a curved crystal Cauchois spectrometer. The analysis of the measurements has included the electrostatic volume effect, screening by the transition electron as well as the non-transition electrons, normal and specific mass shifts, dynamical nuclear qudrupole polarization, and a radiative correction effect of the electron magnetic moment in the nuclear charge radii are obtained. Where other experimental data are available, the agreement with the present measurements is satisfactory. Comparisons with several nuclear model predictions yield only partial agreement.
