    • Abstract


      Cluster decay of superdeformed76, 78, 80Sr isotopes in their ground state are studied taking the Coulomb and proximity potential as the interacting barrier for the post-scission region. The predictedT1/2 values are found to be in close agreement with those values reported by the preformed cluster model (PCM). Our calculation shows that these nuclei are stable against both light and heavy cluster emissions. We studied the decay of these nuclei produced as an excited compound system in heavy-ion reaction. It is found that inclusion of excitation energy increases the decay rate (decreasesT1/2 value) considerably and these nuclei become unstable against decay. These findings support earlier observation of Guptaet al based on PCM.
