Systematics of Gamow-Teller strengths in mid-fp-shell nuclei

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show that the presently available data on the Gamow-Teller (GT) strength in mid-fp-shell nuclei are proportional to the product of the numbers of valence protons and neutron holes in the full fp-shell. This observation leads to important insights into the mechanism for GT quenching and to a simple parametrization of the Gamow-Teller strengths important for electron capture by fp-shell nuclei in the early stage of supernovae.
