# Microscopic calculations of weak decays in superheavy nuclei

@article{Sarriguren2019MicroscopicCO, title={Microscopic calculations of weak decays in superheavy nuclei}, author={P. Sarriguren}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2019} }

Half-lives of ${\ensuremath{\beta}}^{+}$ decay and electron capture are studied in some selected superheavy nuclei produced in hot-fusion reactions, namely, $^{290}\mathrm{Fl}$, $^{293}\mathrm{Mc}$, $^{294}\mathrm{Lv}$, and $^{295}\mathrm{Ts}$. The nuclear structure is described microscopically from deformed self-consistent Skyrme Hartree-Fock mean-field calculations that include pairing correlations. The sensitivity of the half-lives to deformation and to the ${Q}_{\mathrm{EC}}$ energies… Expand
