Investigation Of ¹⁶O Excited States Via The ¹⁴N(³He, p) Reaction
Nuclear Physics A
The reaction ¹⁴N(³He, p)¹⁶O has been investigated at a bombarding energy of 15.0 MeV, using a differentially pumped gas target. Angular distributions were measured for 30 levels below 16.5 MeV in excitation. Data were compared with shell-model calculations of Zuker, Buck and McGrory for states whose correspondence with theory is established. Many states are found to possess a large compound-nucleus reaction component. Several previously unreported levels are observed at high excitation. Angular distributions for all except the weakest levels have been compared with DWBA calculations.
