Appendix: Energy Levels of the Light Nuclei


The following isobaric level schemes of the light nuclei are presented here as a service to the reader of the preceding article. Coulomb-energy differences and neutron-proton mass differences have been removed in accordance with the method described in (1, 2) in order to exhibit the correspondence of levels comprising isotopic-spin multiplets. Remaining mass differences are indicated in square brackets. Level energies in Mev, total angular momentum and parity J^π, and isobaric spin T are indicated. Uncertain values are enclosed in parentheses; uncertain, but probable, levels are shown by dashed lines. Further explanations are given in (3). Detailed references on which these compilations are based can be found in (4, 5). Atomic mass values have been taken from (6).
