Abstract

We found strong evidence for the existence of supersymmetry by studying the odd-odd nucleus 196Au using the 197Au(d→,t), 197Au(p,d), and 198Hg(d→,α) transfer reactions. High resolution 196Pt(p,d) and 196Pt(d→,t) transfer experiments performed in parallel yielded an improved level scheme of 195Pt. Using extended supersymmetry, a single fit of the six parameter eigenvalue expression yielded a complete description of all observed low-lying excited states in the four nuclei forming the supermultiplet. The detailed comparison of the transfer amplitudes the odd-odd member of the supermultiplet 196Au using a semimicroscopic transfer operator provides, then, evidence that this description is correct.
