Potential Energy Surfaces of Actinide Nuclei from a Multi-dimensional Constraint Covariant Density Functional Theory: Barrier Heights and Saddle Point Shapes

Abstracts

For the first time the potential energy surfaces of actinide nuclei in the (β20, β22, β30) deformation space are obtained from a multi-dimensional constrained covariant density functional theory. With this newly developed theory we are able to explore the importance of the triaxial and octupole shapes simultaneously along the whole fission path. It is found that besides the octupole deformation, the triaxiality also plays an important role upon the second fission barriers. The outer barrier as well as the inner barrier are lowered by the triaxial deformation compared with axially symmetric results. This lowering effect for the reflection asymmetric outer barrier is 0.5 ? 1 MeV, accounting for 10 ? 20% of the barrier height. With the inclusion of the triaxial deformation, a good agreement with the data for the outer barriers of actinide nuclei is achieved.
