Abstract

In the present work, we have considered the total potential as the sum of the coulomb and proximity potential. We have used the recent proximity function to calculate the nuclear potential. The calculated logarithmic half-lives correspond to fission, cluster and alpha decay are compared with that of experiments. We also identified the most probable decay mode by studying branching ratios of these different decay modes. The competition between different decay modes such as fission, cluster radioactivity and alpha decay finds an important role in nuclear structure.
