J. P. Greene, S. Zhu, I. Ahmad, F. G. Kondev
Electron capture decays of $^{243}\mathrm{Bk}$ and $^{244}\mathrm{Bk}$ have been studied by measuring the $γ$-ray spectra of mass-separated sources and level structures of $^{243}\mathrm{Cm}$ and $^{244}\mathrm{Cm}$ have been deduced. In $^{243}\mathrm{Cm}$, the electron capture population to the gr...
