Title: Spectroscopy of the proton drip-line nucleus 19Na by resonant elastic and inelastic scattering

Abstract

Low-lying states of 19Na were investigated using both elastic and inelastic scattering of a 18Ne beam on a (CH2)n target. The experimental method is briefly described. Preliminary results are presented.

  • Precision data have been obtained for the elastic scattering of {sup 17}F on {sup 12}C and {sup 14}N at 10 MeV/nucleon to clarify the reaction mechanism for loosely bound nuclei at low energies and to assess the validity of a double-folding procedure to predict optical model potentials for use in indirect methods for nuclear astrophysics. The double-folding procedure incorporates density and energy-dependent effective nucleon-nucleon interactions with realistic densities consistent with experimentally determined asymptotic normalization coefficients. The derived potentials provide an excellent description of the data and point to a complete dominance of absorption at the barrier. A semiclassical analysis inmore » terms of multireflection barrier-internal barrier series expansion of the scattering amplitude shows that only the barrier component survives in the scattering process, pointing to the peripheral character of the reactions.« less
  • The quantities experimentally observed in elastic and inelastic scattering of 497-MeV, 0.8-GeV, and 1-GeV protons by /sup 40/Ca nuclei are analyzed. It is shown that a combined analysis of the nucleon--nucleon data and all the independent quantities observed in proton--nucleus scattering can be a useful source of additional information about the parameters of the nucleon--nucleon amplitude.
  • A modular array named MUST, based on Silicon strip technology has been built and will be devoted to the measurement of recoiling light particles in direct reactions induced by radioactive beams. The detector is described and the performances illustrated with preliminary results from a (p,p{sup '}) scattering experiment recently performed with a secondary {sup 20}O beam at GANIL.
  • The amplitudes for elastic and inelastic proton scattering on the neutron-rich nucleus {sup 15}C (to its J{sup {pi}} = 5/2{sup +} level in the latter case) in inverse kinematics were calculated within Glauber diffraction theory. First- and second-order terms were taken into account in the multiple-scattering operator. The {sup 15}C wave function in the multiparticle shell model was used. This made it possible to calculate not only respective differential cross sections but also the contribution of proton scattering on nucleons occurring in different shells. The differential cross sections for elastic and inelastic scattering were calculated at the energies of 0.2,more » 0.6, and 1 GeV per nucleon.« less
