[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Measurements of the t-t and p-t coincidence events in the 3H (α,tt)1H reaction have been obtained at incident energy Eα=67.2 MeV. Various appropriate angular configurations of detectors were chosen in order to observe the population of the 6He* state at around 18 MeV. Its contribution appears at the relative energy of Ett=6.0 MeV as found from an analysis of the bidimensional spectra. We found the formation of the 6He excited state at E*=18.3±0.2 MeV (with a Γ width of 1.1 ± 0.3 MeV) by using the decay into the t+t binary channel, since the threshold energy of the t+t channel is 12.31 MeV. In each analyzed bidimensional energy spectrum of (Et, Et) and (Ep, Et) coincidence events, resonance structures are present due to the formation of both 6He* and 4He* excited states. Our results on the E* and Γ values regarding the 6He* level of about 18 MeV are compared with the results obtained using other reactions. Moreover, we also found new Γ width values of 0.7 ± 0.3 and 0.8 ± 0.4 MeV for the 14.0 ± 0.4 and 16.1 ± 0.4 MeV 6He levels, respectively.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The $^3$H+$^3$He cluster structure in $^6$Li was investigated by the $^3$H($\alpha$,$^3$H $^3$He)n kinematically complete experiment at the incident energy $E_\alpha$ = 67.2 MeV. We have observed two resonances at $E_x^*$ = 21.30 and 21.90 MeV which are consistent with the $^3$He($^3$H, $\gamma$)$^6$Li analysis in the Ajzenberg-Selove compilation. Our data are compared with the previous experimental data and the RGM and CSRGM calculations.
