Is Gamma-Less Transmutation Possible?

Authors: Akito Takahashi

Very speculative modeling and discussions are made for considering a nuclear physics possibility of Iwamura-type (A, Z)-selective transmutation without hard gamma-rays. The BOLEP (burst-of-low-energy-photons) energy damping mechanism from very highly excited intermediate nucleus by the 4D/TSC-min capture to host metal nucleus is basic idea, after the analogy of 8Be* nucleon halo model for the BOLEP energy damping to 8Be ground state. The very highly excited intermediate nucleus 141Pr*(Ex = 50.49 MeV) by 4D + 133Cs capture reaction may have a two-alpha-halo rotation-vibration deformed state, which would make avalanche energy damping via BOLEP.

Comments: 11 Pages. This is a very specullative paper to be published in Proc. JCF15, JCFRS
