Abstract

Lifetimes of the T=1 isobaric analog Iπ=2+states in 50Mn and 50Cr have been measured simultaneously by employing the recoil distance Doppler-shift ({RDDS}) technique. The states were populated in a fusion-evaporation reaction with a 12C beam on a 40Ca target. An analysis of the data and the calculations from the present work, together with the available B(E2:2+→0+) data of the isobaric analog states in 50Fe and 50Cr, have been used to study isospin symmetry in the three A=50 isobaric nuclei. Shell-model calculations reproduce the magnitudes as well as the increasing trend of the B(E2) data with increasing Z. In order to draw a firm conclusion on the level of isospin mixing in the triplet, a new precision measurement of the 2+→0+ transition rate in 50 Fe will be required.
