A new cluster model solution to the long standing nuclear structure problem of describing the anomalously long lifetime of 14C is presented. Related beta-decay data for 14O to states in 14N, gamma decay data between low lying positive parity states in 14N and the elastic and inelastic magnetic dipole electron scattering from 14N data are all shown to be very accurately described by the model. The shapes of the beta spectra for the A=14 system are also well reproduced by the model. The model… Expand
