Cluster radioactivity, half-life, Fission


Using the preformation cluster model of Gupta and collaborators we have studied all the possible cluster decay modes of 127 I. The calculated half-lives are compared with recently measured lower limits of cluster decay half-lives (for the clusters like 24Ne, 28Mg, 30Mg, 32Si, 34Si, 48Ca and 49Sc) of 127I. Our calculated half-life values lies well above the experimentally measured lower limits and the trend of the values also matches with experimental ones.
