Specific parameters for some isotopes of copernicium and flerovium

Anjana Acharya, Trupti Sahoo, Bibhas R Attreya


Super heavy elements (SHE) in the periodic table are generally transuranic and transactinide elements having Z > 92. Here, some of the properties of two super heavy elements viz. Copernicium (Cn) and Flerovium (Fl) are discussed. The half life time, transition probability, Gamow’s factor, disintegration constant are calculated for these super heavy elements and compared with other values.
