Abstract

Based on the hypothesized cluster-formation model (CFM), the μ-decay preformation factors of superheavy isotopes of Flerovium (Fl) with atomic number Z = 114 and neutron numbers 150 ≤ N ≤ 196 were determined. The formula from the CFM used depends on the eigenvalues of the cluster-formation energy of the μ particles and the total energy values of the parent nuclei. The binding energy difference was used to determine these values. The results from the calculations for these isotopes reflect some properties of their nuclear structure. Within the CFM, the prediction of the magic nucleus occurs at N = 172 and Z = 114. Our results indicate towards the existence of shell closure of the stabilization superheavy nuclei.
