Abstract

Abstract Microscopic Hartree-Fock plus BCS calculations in three-dimensional coordinate space are performed to obtain potential energy surfaces in order to analyse shape isomerism in mass regions other than the well-documented fission isomers in the actinides. Many isotopes of platinum, mercury and osmium exhibit a second minimum with a large deformation and are thus candidates for shape isomerism. The same feature also occurs around the 68Ni nucleus. The most promising candidates for experimental verification are delineated.
