Paper Abstract

Results from a data base search of computerized nuclear structure libraries have been extended and augmented so as to expand the in-formation available for nuclei suitable as gamma-ray laser candidates. The spectrum of nuclear levels occurring in deformed rotational nuclei have been calculated and have been used in conjunction with isomeric state data for odd-A systems. The results of this augmentation effort are presented with particular emphasis on results obtained for 177Lu, 177Hf, and 179Hf. For these cases some possibly interesting cases were identified that meet energy spacing criteria. However, significant hindrance factors exist for them which negate their interest for gamma-ray laser applications.
