Title: Indirect methods of determination of the asymptotic normalization coefficients and their application for nuclear astrophysics

Abstract

The basic methods of the determination of asymptotic normalization coefficient for A+a→B of astrophysical interest are briefly presented. The results of the application of the specific asymptotic normalization coefficients derived within these methods for the extrapolation of the astrophysical S factors to experimentally inaccessible energy regions (E ≤ 25 keV) for the some specific radiative capture A(a,γ)B reactions of the pp-chain and the CNO cycle are presented.

  • The 14C + n <--> 15C system has been used as a test case in the evaluation of a new method to determine spectroscopic factors that uses the asymptotic normalization coefficient (ANC). The method proved to be unsuccessful for this case. As part of this experimental program, the ANCs for the 15C ground state and first excited state were determined using a heavy-ion neutron transfer reaction as well as the inverse kinematics (d,p) reaction, measured at the Texas A&M Cyclotron Institute. The ANCs were used to evaluate the astrophysical direct neutron capture rate on 14C, which was then compared withmore » the most recent direct measurement and found to be in good agreement. A study of the 15C SF via its mirror nucleus 15F and a new insight into deuteron stripping theory are also presented.« less
  • The squares of neutron asymptotic normalization coefficient (ANC) for {sup 27}Mg {yields} {sup 26}Mg + n are extracted to be 44.0 {+-} 5.3, 3.40 {+-} 0.32 and 0.90 {+-} 0.08 fm{sup -1} from the angular distributions of the {sup 26}Mg(d,p){sup 27}Mg reaction leading to the ground, first, and second excited states of {sup 27}Mg, respectively, based on distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA) analysis. According to charge symmetry of mirror nuclei, the square of proton ANC for {sup 27}P {yields} {sup 26}Si + p is determined to be 1840 {+-} 240 fm{sup -1} and then utilized to calculate the astrophysical S-factormore » and rate for the direct capture into the {sup 27}P ground state. In addition, the proton widths for the first and second excited states in {sup 27}P are derived to be 1.30 {+-} 0.12 x 10{sup -8} and 1.79 {+-} 0.15 x 10{sup -5} MeV from the neutron ANCs and used to compute the contribution of the resonant captures. Furthermore, we have also presented the total astrophysical {sup 26}Si(p,{gamma}){sup 27}P reaction rate.« less
  • From the exact three-body distorted wave amplitude obtained by other authors for the one-charged-particle-transfer reaction A(x, y)B within the strict three-body (x = y + a and B = A + a, where a is a transferred particle) model, its part is separated in which the three-body Coulomb dynamics of the transfer mechanism is taken into account correctly. The contribution of the three-body Coulomb dynamics of the transfer mechanism to the partial wave amplitudes at l >> 1 for the peripheral proton-transfer reactions {sup 13}C({sup 3}He, d){sup 14}N, {sup 13}C({sup 14}N, {sup 13}C){sup 14}N, and {sup 9}Be({sup 10}B, {sup 9}Be){supmore » 10}B is estimated within the three-body approach combining the dispersion method and the DWBA approach. For these reactions, the Coulomb renormalization factors, arising owing to correctly taking into account the three-body Coulomb dynamics of the proton-transfer mechanism in the DWBA cross sections, are calculated. A new estimate is obtained for the values of the asymptotic normalization factors for p + {sup 13}C {sup {yields}} {sup 14}N, which also have astrophysical interest.« less
  • The properties of nuclear vertex constants and of asymptotic normalization coefficients are considered along with methods for determining these quantities. Recent assertions in the literature that the properties of bound states cannot be extracted from phase shifts for a single partial wave are shown to be incorrect. A new method for determining vertex constants that employs both data of partial-wave analyses and analytic properties of scattering amplitudes is proposed.
