Recent progress in experimental techniques allows us to study very exotic systems like neutron-rich nuclei in the vicinity of {sup 78}Ni. The spectroscopy of this region can nowadays be studied theoretically in the large scale shell model calculations. In this work, we perform a shell model study of odd copper nuclei with N=40-50, in a large valence space with the {sup 48}Ca core, using a realistic interaction derived from the CD-Bonn potential. We present the crucial importance of the proton… CONTINUE READING
