NILSSON MODEL: APPLICATIONS AND REFINEMENTS
The description of odd mass deformed nuclei in terms of Nilsson orbits and their configuration-mixed nonspherical wave functions has been an extremely successful model for more than four decades. One of its most appealing features is that it is extremely easy to test empirically and to measure the detailed shell model composition of individual Nilsson wave functions. Single nucleon transfer reactions provide a direct and specific measure of each successive component in the Nilsson wave functions. This chapter discusses the applications and refinements of the Nilsson model, with emphasis on the Coriolis interaction in deformed nuclei, Coriolis mixing and single nucleon transfer cross sections, unique parity states, hexadecapole deformations and unique parity states, Coriolis effects at higher spins, and rotation aligned coupling.
