The $\beta$ decay of the isomeric and ground state of $^{50}$Sc to the semi-magic nucleus $^{50}_{22}$Ti$_{28}$ has been studied using a $^{50}$Ca beam delivered to the GRIFFIN $\gamma$-ray spectrometer at the TRIUMF-ISAC facility. $\beta$-decay branching ratios are reported to 16 excited states with a total of 38 $\gamma$-ray transitions linking them. These new data significantly expands the information available over previous studies. Relative intensities are measured to less than 0.001…

Nonempirical Interactions for the Nuclear Shell Model: An Update

The nuclear shell model has perhaps been the most important conceptual and computational paradigm for the understanding of the structure of atomic nuclei. While the shell model has been used

Shell-model description of neutron-rich pf-shell nuclei with a new effective interaction GXPF 1

Abstract.The shell-model effective interaction GXPF1 is tested for the description of unstable pf-shell nuclei. The GXPF1 successfully describes the N = 32 shell gap in Ca, Ti and Cr isotopes, while

Nuclear forces and their impact on neutron-rich nuclei and neutron-rich matter

We review the impact of nuclear forces on matter at neutron-rich extremes. Recent results have shown that neutron-rich nuclei become increasingly sensitive to three-nucleon forces, which are at the
