Abstract: A systematic investigation of the shears mechanism in silver isotopes has been carried out. Lifetimes have been measured by means of the Doppler-shift attenuation method for states in two magnetic dipole (M1) bands in Ag105 and one each in Ag103 and Ag106. Experimental total angular momenta and reduced transition strengths for these bands have been compared with the predictions of the tilted axis cranking (TAC) model with configurations involving one g9/2 proton and quasineutrons from the h11/2 and g7/2 or d5/2 orbitals. There is good overall agreement for both the total angular momenta and reduced transition strengths. The deduced B(M1) strengths, which are a sensitive probe of magnetic rotation, show a decrease consistent with TAC predictions for one M1 band in Ag105 and in Ag106, confirming the shears mechanism as the means of excitation. Furthermore, the staggering in the transition energies in Ag103 and absence of regular sequences of M1 transitions for N≤56 suggest that N=56 is the lower boundary for the appearance of the shears mechanism in this mass region. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
