Gamow-Teller (GT) transitions can be studied in both β- decay and charge exchange(CE) reactions. If isospin is a good quantum number, then the Tz = -1 → 0 and Tz = +1 → 0 GT mirror transitions, are identical. Therefore, a comparison of the results from studies of β decay and CE should shed light on this assumption. Accordingly we have studied the β decay of the Tz = -1 fp-shell nuclei, 54Ni, 50Fe, 46Cr, and 42Ti, produced in fragmentation and we have compared our results with the spectra from (3He, t) measurements on the mirror Tz = +1 target nuclei studied in high resolution at RCNP, Osaka. The experiments were performed as part of the STOPPED beam RISING campaign at GSI. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
