Examining the N = 28 shell closure through high-precision mass measurements of 46-48Ar [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
The strength of the N = 28 magic number in neutron-rich argon isotopes is examined through high-precision mass measurements of 46 – 48 Ar , performed with the ISOLTRAP mass spectrometer at ISOLDE/CERN. The new mass values are up to 90 times more precise than previous measurements. While they suggest the persistence of the N = 28 shell closure for argon, we show that this conclusion has to be nuanced in light of the wealth of spectroscopic data and theoretical investigations performed with the SDPF-U phenomenological shell model interaction. Our results are also compared with ab initio calculations using the valence space in-medium similarity renormalization group and the self-consistent Green's function approaches. Both calculations provide a very good account of mass systematics at and around Z = 18 and, generally, a consistent description of the physics in this region. This combined analysis indicates that 46 Ar is the transition between the closed-shell 48 Ca and collective 44 S .
