Separation energies of light nuclei with atomic number from 1 to 20

P. Mandal, R. L. Nayak, T. Sahoo, Anjana Acharya


The 1n and 1p halo nuclei from atomic number 1 to 20 are discussed here to calculate the variation of separation energy with mass defect and binding energy. Semi-empirical mass formula and shell model are the methods applied here. The appearances of p- and r-branches satisfying the selection rules for different isotopes of nuclides are discussed.
