Title: Spectroscopic studies on light proton-rich nuclei

Abstract

A systematic for the light proton rich nuclei with constant TZ = -3/2 isospin is proposed, where a survey on their structure have shown interesting features. Preliminary results of a re-analysis on the sctructure of 13O nucleus is also presented. This 13O nucleus have been investigated by the 3-neutron pick up (3He,6He) reaction, and new levels have been assigned for this nucleus.

  • Fast beams of radioactive isotope (RI) have been used for nuclear spectroscopy at RIKEN since 1990. Various direct-reaction experiments have been performed at intermediate-energies in the reversed kinematics to study structures of nuclei very far from the stability valley. Several examples of recent results on neutron-rich nuclei around N=20 and carbon isotopes are presented. The RIKEN RI Beam Factory, which will have the first beam in the end of 2006, will greatly extend the region of study to more exotic and heavier nuclei.
  • The angular distributions have been measured for the three-neutron pickup reaction ({sup 3}He, {sup 6}He) at 74 MeV. The angular distributions measured show a clear dependence on the transferred angular momentum. This feature allows spin-parity assignments, suggesting this reaction to be a useful tool for studying proton-rich nuclei.
  • Recent experiments show that there may exist proton halos in exotic light proton-rich nuclei. We investigate the effect of an extended proton density distribution on the cross sections and form factors of elastic electron scattering from the exotic proton drip-line nuclei {sup 28}S and {sup 12}O. With charge density distributions from the self-consistent relativistic mean field model, we calculate the cross sections and form factors for elastic electron scattering in the eikonal approximation. The numerical results are compared with the available data of the stable nuclei {sup 32}S and {sup 16}O. The results show that the form factors and crossmore » sections for elastic electron scattering at intermediate-momentum transfers are very sensitive to the alterations of the charge density distributions of the last protons in exotic nuclei {sup 28}S and {sup 12}O. This is an interesting combination of the reliable relativistic mean field model with the model of electron-nucleus scattering and it can be useful for future experiments.« less
  • Differential cross sections for elastic p{sup 6}He, p{sup 8}Li, and p{sup 9}Li scattering at two energies of 70 and 700 MeV per nucleon were calculated within the Glauber theory of multiple diffractive scattering. Threeparticle wave functions ({alpha}-n-n for {sup 6}He, {alpha}-t-n for {sup 8}Li, and {sup 7}Li-n-n for {sup 9}Li) were used for realistic potentials of intercluster interactions. The sensitivity of elastic scattering to proton-nucleus interaction and to the structure of nuclei was explored. In particular, the dependence of the differential cross section on the contribution of higher order collisions, on scattering on the core and peripheral nucleons, and onmore » the contribution of small wave-function components and their asymptotic behavior was determined. A comparison with available experimental data and with the results of calculations within different formalisms was performed.« less
