  A  44S β- decay (100 MS)  B  9Be(45Cl,44ClG)

General Comments:

44Cl identified in 64Ni(48Ca,X) E=60 MeV/nucleon (1995So03). Particle stability established in 9Be(48Ca,X) reaction (1979We10)

Mass measurement in Th(p,x) E=800 MeV (1991Zh24,1990Tu01)

1999WiZX: 44Cl produced by fragmentation of 48Ca beam at 70 MeV/nucleon with a Be target. Measured Eγ, Iγ, γγ coin and βγγ coin using Ge and Si detectors.

1999Ai02: 44Cl beam from 55Mn fragmentation, Si(44Cl,X) studied. Measured cross section and strong absorption radius. A1200 separator at NSCL facility

2006Kh08: 44Cl beam from 48Ca fragmentation at 60.3 MeV/nucleon with 181Ta target using LISE3 at GANIL facility, Si(44Cl,X) studied. Measured cross section and strong absorption radius

2010De11: measurement of g factor of 44Cl g.s. by β-NMR method. 44Cl produced in fragmentation of 48Ca beam at 60 MeV/nucleon bombarding 9Be target. Secondary beam selected by LISE separator at GANIL facility. Large scale shell-model calculations

Mass measurement (time-of-flight method): 2000Sa21 (also 2001Sa72)

No information is available for population of levels in 44Cl from β- decay of 44S.

The delayed-neutron decay of 45S is reported as 54% (1995So03) which is expected to populate 44Cl, but no level or feeding data are available.

Theory: 2010Af01, 2010Ga15

Gammas: Two strong γ rays at 515 and 720 keV are reported by 2009Ri04 in the 9Be(45Cl,44Clγ) reaction, but not placed in the level scheme

Q-value: Note: Current evaluation has used the following Q record

Q-value: Q(β-n)=3330 140, S(2n)=11830 200, S(2p)=36190 250 (2011AuZZ)

Q-value: Values in 2003Au03: Q(β-)=12440 110, S(n)=4130 190, S(p)=15550 230, Q(α)=-14550 180, Q(β-n)=3710 110, S(2n)=11460 180, S(2p)=35750 460
