Title: Two-neutron sequential decay of O 24

In this study, a two-neutron unbound excited state of 24O was populated through a (d,d') reaction at 83.4 MeV/nucleon. A state at E=715±110 (stat) ±45 (sys) keV with a width of Γ<2 MeV was observed above the two-neutron separation energy placing it at 7.65 ± 0.2 MeV with respect to the ground state. Three-body correlations for the decay of 24O → 22O + 2n show clear evidence for a sequential decay through an intermediate state in 23O. Neither a di-neutron nor phase-space model for the three-body breakup were able to describe these correlations.
