Spin and parity studies of (107)Ag and (109)Ag neutron resonances
Two experiments have been performed to determine the spin assignment of (107)Ag and (109)Ag neutron resonances in the epithermal region. By using the low-level population method and information from primary gamma-rays the spins of fifty-three (107)Ag resonances and seventy-eight (109)Ag resonances have been determined. From the data analysis, clear evidence has been found that the population of the low-lying states of the compound nuclei depends also on the orbital angular momentum of the resonance; this dependence can be exploited as a new method for the assignment of the resonance parities.
