Abstract : The short lived beta and gamma spectra of Na20, Al24, p28, Cl32 and Sc40 have been measured with a single wedge gap magnetic spectrometer and a Lithium drifted Germanium detector. These isotopes were produced by proton induced reactions on the even-even Tz = 0 nuclei in the 2s-1d shell. Background and contaminants were separated from these short lived isotopes at each positron momentum by an on-line computer. The complete decay schemes are presented including the ground-state masses and the first T = 1 analog states in the daughter nuclei. These isotopes lie in an interesting transition region between the deformed (Na20 and Al24) and the spherical nuclei (Ca40). (Author)
