Abstract Theoretical estimates for the lifetimes of several isotopes of heavy elements with Z = 102 – 120 are presented by calculating the quantum mechanical tunneling probability in a WKB framework and using microscopic nucleus–nucleus potential obtained by folding the densities of interacting nuclei with the DDM3Y effective nuclear interaction. The α -decay half lives calculated in this formalism using the experimental Q -values are in good agreement over a wide range of experimental data… Expand
