Transfer reactions in inverse kinematics: An experimental approach for fission investigations
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2014

Inelastic and multinucleon transfer reactions between a U-238 beam, accelerated at 6.14 MeV/u, and a C-12 target were used for the production of neutron-rich, fissioning systems from U to Cm. A Si telescope, devoted to the detection of the targetlike nuclei, provided a characterization of the fissioning systems in atomic and mass numbers, as well as in excitation energy. Cross sections and angular and excitation-energy distributions were measured for the inelastic and transfer channels. Possible excitations of the targetlike nuclei were experimentally investigated for the first time, by means of gamma-ray measurements. The decays from the first excited states of 12C, B-11, and Be-10 were observed with probabilities of 0.12-0.14, while no evidence for the population of higher-lying states was found. Moreover, the fission probabilities of U-238, Np-239 and Pu-240,Pu-241,Pu-242 and Cm-244 were determined as a function of the excitation energy.
