Title: Neutron transfer reactions in halo effective field theory

Abstract

Direct reaction experiments exhibit a powerful tool to probe the structure of neutron-rich nuclei like beryllium-11. We use halo effective field theory to calculate the cross section of the deuteron-induced neutron transfer reaction 10Be(d, p) 11Be. The effective theory contains dynamical fields for the beryllium-10 core, the neutron, and the proton. In contrast, the deuteron and the beryllium-11 halo nucleus are generated dynamically from contact interactions using experimental and ab initio input. Breakup contributions are then included by construction. The reaction amplitude is constructed up to next-to-leading order in an expansion in the ratio of the length scales characterizing the core and the halo. The Coulomb repulsion between core and proton is treated perturbatively. Lastly, we compare our results to cross-section data and other calculations.
