Abstract

Proton radioactivity from the closed neutron shell nucleus Ta has been observed. It was produced via the p4n fusion evaporation channel using a Ni beam on a Pd target. The measured decay properties are E = 1765(10) keV and t = 12 μs. Spin and parity J = 11/2 and a spectroscopic factor S==0.58 characterize the decaying state.
