Abstract

A clusterization theory is presented to describe the clusterization probability (preformation factor). The clusterization states are described as a quantum-mechanical cluster-formation state in a proposed cluster-formation model to determine the preformation factor of alpha-decay process in radioactive nuclei. The formation of alpha particle inside the parent nuclei is considered within two postulates; the compound nucleus of Bohr's assumption and the surface effect. The total and formation energy are obtained from the from the binding energies differences. This model is tested for 212Po for the alpha-cluster decay. The calculated preformation factor 0.54 has shown good agreements with that of some others as reported. As such, this model could give more insight to the understanding of the nuclear structure in the radioactive nuclei.
