Abstract

Nuclear decay properties of the neutron-deficient actinide isotopes 233,234,235,236Am and 237,238Cm have been investigated using a gas-jet coupled on-line isotope separator at the JAERI tandem accelerator facility. Alpha-decays of 233,235,236Am and 237,238Cm produced in the 6Li-induced reactions on 233,235U and 237Np targets have been observed with unambiguous mass identification, and the new isotopes 233Am and 237Cmhave been identified for the first time. Alpha-particle energies, Qα values, half-lives and α-branching intensities were determined and the observed α decays of 233Am and 235Am are regardedas the favored tr.
