Abstract

The E1 response of the semi-magic nucleus 140Ce below the particle
threshold was measured in a (gamma, gamma') experiment utilizing the new
Euroball Cluster detector at the S-DALINAC. While the energy averaged data
are in good agreement with the tagged photon results, here they are resolved
for the first time into 54 individual transitions. A quasiparticle-phonon
model calculation including up to three-phonon configurations compares
well to the extracted strength distribution. The interference between one-
and two-phonon contributions is essential for a quantitative reproduction.
