@article{Tkalya2015RadiativeLA, title={Radiative lifetime and energy of the low-energy isomeric level in \$^\{229\}\$Th}, author={E V Tkalya and Christian Schneider and J. Jeet and Eric R. Hudson}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2015}, volume={92}, pages={054324} }

We estimate the range of the radiative lifetime and energy of the anomalous, low-energy $3/{2}^{+}(7.8\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}0.5$ eV) state in the $^{229}\mathrm{Th}$ nucleus. Our phenomenological calculations are based on the available experimental data for the intensities of $M1$ and $E2$ transitions between excited levels of the $^{229}\mathrm{Th}$ nucleus in the ${K}^{\ensuremath{\pi}}[N{n}_{Z}\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Lambda}}]=5/{2}^{+}[633]$ and $3/{2}^{+}[631]$ rotational bands. We also…

The cross section of the time reversed process is large, and as a consequence, the probability of the nonradiative ^{229m}Th decay via the conduction electrons in metal is close to the internal conversion probability in the Th atom.

The low-lying isomeric state of ^{229}Th provides unique opportunities for high-resolution laser spectroscopy of the atomic nucleus and is determined by taking the absolute energy difference between the excitation energy required to populate the 29.2-keV state and the energy emitted in its decay to the isomersic excited state.
