Main Question or Discussion Point

I wonder why at high Z, isomeric transitions with small transition energies may be 100% converted.

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

I believe that IT rate scales as the inverse of the excited state energy to some large power (E-5), as well as proportional to Z2, thus explaining both the enhancement for small small transition energies and high-Z isotopes
