A dynamical study of the decay of a metastable state by quantum tunneling through an anisotropic, nonseparable, two-dimensional potential barrier is performed by the numerical solution of the time-dependent Schr{umlt o}dinger equation. Initial quasistationary proton states are chosen in the framework of a deformed Woods-Saxon single-particle model. The decay of two sets of states corresponding to true and quasi-level-crossing is studied and the evolution of their decay properties as a function… Expand

Time-dependent approach to bidimensional quantum tunneling: application to the proton emission from deformed nuclei
Abstract The time-dependent two-dimensional Schrodinger equation is solved numerically for initial quasi-stationary states which tunnel through an anisotropic, non-separable potential barrier. TheExpand
Two-fermion emission from spin-singlet and triplet resonances in one dimension
Time-dependent calculation has been a suitable method to investigate the quantum dynamical processes. In Ref. [1] = [T. Oishi et al., J. of Phys. G 45, 105101 (2018)], we applied this method to theExpand
Protonic decay of oriented nuclei
On the basis of the multiparticle theory of protonic decay, the angular distributions of protons emitted by oriented spherical and deformed nuclei in the laboratory frame and in the internalExpand
Nuclear structure at the proton drip line: Advances with nuclear decay studies
Abstract The study of nuclear decay modes reveals a large panel of nuclear structure phenomena and allows us to investigate the behaviour of the atomic nucleus with an extreme imbalance of the numberExpand
One- and Two-Proton Radioactivity
For many years one-proton radioactivity studies have been a powerful tool to investigate nuclear structure close to the proton drip line. In many cases, they are the only means to give access toExpand
The Lifetime of the Proton-decaying 8915 keV State in 58Cu
