Experimental study of bound states in Be-12 through low-energy Be-11(d,p)-transfer reactions
Journal article, 2013
The bound states of Be-12 have been studied through a Be-11(d, p) Be-12 transfer reaction experiment in inverse kinematics. A 2.8 MeV/u beam of Be-11 was produced using the REX-ISOLDE facility at CERN. The outgoing protons were detected with the T-REX silicon detector array. The MINIBALL germanium array was used to detect gamma rays from the excited states in Be-12. The gamma-ray detection enabled a clear identification of the four known bound states in Be-12, and each of the states has been studied individually. Differential cross sections over a large angular range have been extracted. Spectroscopic factors for each of the states have been determined from distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA) calculations and have been compared to previous experimental and theoretical results.
