ABSTRACT: The breakup of deuterons in the field of gold and lead nuclei was
investigated experimentally. Angular correlations were measured at a
deuteron energy of 12 MeV and, in the case of gold, also at 10.5 MeV.
Furthermore, the energy dependence of the breakup cross section was
studied with a gold target in the range lying between 7 and 12 MeV.
Comparison of the experimental results with theoretical predictions
based on a model which takes only Coulomb forces into account shows
large discrepancies, the reason for which is presumed to be due to
neglecting the nuclear interaction of the neutron in the final state. Physical Review C 07/1973; · 3.72 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The mechanism of the first step of a sequential decay reaction can be determined by a measurement of the angular correlations which in turn lead to the polarization of the unstable particle. This method has been applied to the reaction 12C(d, pn)12C; the first step is assumed to be a stripping reaction leading to a doublet of levels in 13N*. An analysis of the results in PWBA confirms this hypothesis, but the large discrepancies between this model and the measured angular distribution emphasize the importance of initial and finalstate interactions.

ABSTRACT: Phase shifts of angular momenta l ≦ 3 for dα elastic scattering were extracted from differential cross sections and the vector and tensor analysing powers of the scattering between 3 and 11.5 MeV. Good fits to all the experimental data analysed could be obtained and the total reaction cross section correctly predicted. Continuous extension of the phase shifts to lower and higher energies is possible, and the Pwave phase shifts are well fixed by the analysed data. Singlelevel parameters of the 2+ and 1+ (T = 0) resonances were determined. The coupling between the S and Dwaves for J = 1 was found to be very small. No alternative solution could be found from the data used in this analysis. Nuclear Physics A 04/1972; · 1.53 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The differential cross section σ0(θ) and the analysing powers iT11(θ), T20(θ), T21(θ) and T22(θ) of the reactions 2H(d, p)3H and 2H(d, n)3He have been measured. The 2H(d, p)3H reaction was measured at 9 energies between 3.0 and 11.5 MeV at lab angles between 7.5° and 160°. The reaction 2H(d, n)3He was measured at 10.0 and 11.5 MeV at c.m. angles ranging from 95° to 156°. The results were fitted with Legendre polynomials and the resulting coefficients analysed for possible resonances in 4He. Differences in the analysing powers between the 2H(d, p)3H and the 2H(d, n)3He reactions can be explained by Coulomb effects. Nuclear Physics A 01/1972; · 1.53 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The angular distributions of the analysing powers iT11(θ), T20(θ), T21(θ) and T22(θ) of the elastic scattering of polarized deuterons on deuterons have been measured at deuteron energies of 6.0, 8.0, 10.0 and 11.5 MeV. The vector component has small but nonzero values which change sign between 6.0 and 10.0 MeV. The tensor components have increasing values with increasing energy. The results are discussed in respect of resonances in 4He and a term scheme is proposed for a complete phaseshift analysis. Nuclear Physics A 01/1972; 193(1):149154. · 1.53 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The analysing powers T11 (theta), T20 (theta), T21 (theta) and T22 (theta) of the elastic scattering of polarized deuterons on 3Hehave been measured for six energies between 4.0 MeV and 11.5 MeV at c.m. angles between 30° and 160°. Strong variations of the angular distribution for all components are observed between 4.0 and 6.0 MeV which suggest that one or several levels in 5Li are excited by this reaction. At higher energies the analysing powers show strong similarities in the shape of the angular distribution to the d4He elastic scattering.

ABSTRACT: The differential cross section σ0(θ) and the analysing powers iT11(θ), T20(θ), T21(θ) and T22(θ) of the reaction 3He(d, p)4He have been measured for 7 energies between 2.8 MeV and 11.5 MeV at lab angles between 0° and 160°. The results were fitted with Legendre polynomials. The energy dependence of the resulting Legendre coefficients indicate resonancelike behaviour at energies corresponding to excitations of 16.6 MeV, 17.5 MeV, 20.0 MeV, 20.9 MeV and 22.4 MeV in 5Li. The reaction 3He(d, p)4He is an excellent analyser for deuteron vector and tensor polarization when specific angles for the different analysing power are chosen.

ABSTRACT: The polarization of protons elastically and inelastically scattered on 24Mg, 52Cr and 58Ni leaving the residual nucleus in its first excited state was measured with a carbon polarimeter. The energy of the incident protons was varied between 5.38 and 5.95 MeV and the lab scattering angle between 45° and 120°. In addition, the excitation functions were measured for 24Mg (p, p1)24Mg∗ between 5 and 6 MeV and for 52Cr(p, p0)52Cr and 52Cr(p, p1)52Cr∗ between 5 and 6.5 MeV. Large values of the polarization were determined for the protons scattered on 24Mg and in agreement with the predictions of the statistical CN model, no polarization was observed for the protons inelastically scattered on 58Ni. Relatively large polarizations were found in the inelastic scattering on 52Cr which seems to indicate a violation of the statistical assumptions. The latter had been believed to be fulfilled, since (p, p′γ) angular correlation measurements on 52Cr had given excellent agreement with the statistical CN theory. On the other hand, the angular crosscorrelation function of the crosssection fluctuations also does not agree with the statistical theory. The correlated intermediate structure of the excitation functions can probably be interpreted as an excitation of doorway states which in turn would also explain the measured polarizations.

ABSTRACT: The vector polarization parameter 〈iT11〉 of deuterons scattered on 4He has been measured using the vector polarized deuteron beam from the ETH tandem accelerator. Measurements were made at c.m. angles between 33.6° and 151° in the energy range of 3 to 11.5 MeV. The results show that dα scattering is useful as an analyser for deuteron vector polarization for most deuteron energies in this energy range. Nuclear Physics A. 09/1969;
