SummaryThe 2p-1s, 3d-2p, 3p-2s, 2s-2p, 3p-1s and 3d-1s muonic X-ray transitions in208Pb have been used to determine the parameters of a spherical Fermi charge distribution and to deduce the nuclear polarization of the 1s, 2s and 2p muonic levels. We find the fitted value for the 1s nuclear polarization to be larger by a factor of two than calculations; this may shed light on low-lying nuclear compressive modes.RiassuntoSi sono usate le transizioni muoniche di raggi X 2p-1s, 3d-2p, 3p-2s, 2s-2p… CONTINUE READING
