Rotation of Tetrahedral Nuclei in the Cranking Model

N. SCHUNCK$^{1,2}$, P. OLBRATOWSKI$^{2}$, J. DUDEK$^{3}$, and J. DOBACZEWSKI


The three-dimensional cranking model is used to investigate the microscopic aspects of the rotation of nuclei with the tetrahedral symmetry. Two classes of rotation axes are studied corresponding to two different discrete symmetries of the rotating hamiltonian. Self-consistent Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov calculations show that the tetrahedral minimum remains remarkably stable until the first single-particle crossing.
