Biography

Jeff Tostevin is a theoretical nuclear physicist and a member of the Centre for Nuclear and Radiation Physics at Surrey. He has active research collaborations with colleagues at at Surrey and with theoretical and experimental physicists in the UK, the USA, Japan, and Europe. He joined the staff of the University of Surrey as a 'New Blood' lecturer in 1985. His particular research interests are the use of nuclear collisions and reactions to probe the structure of nuclei and to understand the reaction mechanisms and dynamics involved when nucleons and composite nuclei collide with a nuclear target.

Research Interests

Jeff Tostevin is especially interested in the quantum mechanical and associated computational modelling of collisions of nucleons, loosely bound composite, exotic and unstable (neutron or proton rich) nuclear systems, their scattering and breakup, and also the dependence of these phenomena upon the spins of the nuclei and their constituents. He, with other Centre members, is pursuing research directed toward the greater understanding of the properties of nuclei away from the line of stable nuclei, taking opportunities provided by the recent production and use of high-intensity radioactive beams of exotic nuclei with unusual combinations of neutrons and protons. 

Research Collaborations

These are reflected in the publications list. Productive and long term collaborations are active with physicists at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Facility at Michigan State University, Florida State University and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the USA, Tokyo Institute of Technology and RIKEN in Japan and with numerous European collaborators.

    Abstract

    The ground state two-proton decay lifetime of Mg19, populated by the one-neutron knockout of an intermediate-energy Mg20 radioactive beam, was measured utilizing a new experimental technique. A thin silicon detector positioned at varying distances (0.0–1.0 mm) downstream of the reaction target measured the energy loss of Mg19 and the two-proton decay product Ne17. The lifetime was deduced from fits to the measured energy-loss line shapes and depended upon the contribution of prompt reaction processes to the yield of Ne17. For relative Ne17 prompt contributions from 82% to 92%, the extracted lifetimes ranged from 1.75+0.43−0.42 to 6.4+2.4−2.7 ps. The results are consistent with the previously reported Mg19 lifetime measurement and serve as both an important complementary study and a validation of this new technique, which can provide lifetime information for short-lived states beyond the proton drip line.

    Abstract

    Cross sections of 1n-removal reactions from the neutron-rich nucleus Mg37 on C and Pb targets and the parallel momentum distributions of the Mg37 residues from the C target have been measured at 240  MeV/nucleon. A combined analysis of these distinct nuclear- and Coulomb-dominated reaction data shows that the Mg37 ground state has a small 1n separation energy of 0.22+0.12−0.09  MeV and an appreciable p-wave neutron single-particle strength. These results confirm that Mg37 lies near the edge of the “island of inversion” and has a sizable p-wave neutron halo component, the heaviest such system identified to date.

    Abstract

    A measurement of the direct two-proton removal from Si42 has provided the first structural information on the N=28 isotone Mg40. The value for the inclusive cross section for two-proton removal from Si42 of 40+27−17 μb is significantly lower than that predicted by structure calculations using the recent SDPF-MU shell-model effective interaction combined with eikonal reaction theory. This observed discrepancy is consistent with the interpretation that only one of the predicted low-lying 0+ states in Mg40 is bound. A two-state mixing analysis describing two-proton knockout cross sections along N=28 provides support for the interpretation of a prolate-deformed Mg40 ground state.

    Abstract

    The halo structure of Ne31 is studied using 1n-removal reactions on C and Pb targets at 230  MeV/nucleon. A combined analysis of the cross sections of these nuclear and Coulomb dominated reactions that feed directly the Ne30 ground-state reveals Ne31 to have a small neutron separation energy, 0.15+0.16−0.10  MeV, and spin-parity 3/2−. Consistency of the data with reaction and large-scale shell-model calculations identifies Ne31 as deformed and having a significant p-wave halo component, suggesting that halos are more frequent occurrences at the neutron drip line.

(2014) 'Nuclear Structure Towards N=40 Ca60: In-Beam γ-Ray Spectroscopy of Ti58,60'. APS Physical Review Letters, 112 Article number 112503

    Abstract

    Excited states in the neutron-rich N=38, 36 nuclei Ti60 and Ti58 were populated in nucleon-removal reactions from V61 projectiles at 90  MeV/nucleon. The γ-ray transitions from such states in these Ti isotopes were detected with the advanced γ-ray tracking array GRETINA and were corrected event by event for large Doppler shifts (v/c∼0.4) using the γ-ray interaction points deduced from online signal decomposition. The new data indicate that a steep decrease in quadrupole collectivity occurs when moving from neutron-rich N=36, 38 Fe and Cr toward the Ti and Ca isotones. In fact, Ti58,60 provide some of the most neutron-rich benchmarks accessible today for calculations attempting to determine the structure of the potentially doubly magic nucleus Ca60.

    Abstract

    The heaviest particle-bound carbon isotope, C22, is thought to have a Borromean three-body structure. We discuss and compare four-body, i.e. three-body projectile plus target, reaction model calculations of reaction cross sections for such systems that use the fast adiabatic approximation. These methods are efficient and well-suited for quantitative analyses of reactions of neutron-rich nuclei with light target nuclei at secondary beam energies of ≈300 MeV/nucleon, as are now becoming available. We compare the predictions of the adiabatic model of the reaction both without and when including the additional eikonal approximation that has been used extensively. We show that the reaction cross section calculations have only limited sensitivity to the size and structure of C22 and that the differences arising from use of the eikonal approximation of the reaction mechanism are of a similar magnitude.

    Abstract

    The first spectroscopy of excited states in 52Ni (Tz=-2) and 51Co (Tz=-3/2) has been obtained using the highly selective two-neutron knockout reaction. Mirror energy differences between isobaric analogue states in these nuclei and their mirror partners are interpreted in terms of isospin nonconserving effects. A comparison between large-scale shell-model calculations and data provides the most compelling evidence to date that both electromagnetic and an additional isospin nonconserving interactions for J=2 couplings, of unknown origin, are required to obtain good agreement.

    Abstract

    Theories of (d,p) reactions frequently use a formalism based on a transition amplitude that is dominated by the components of the total three-body scattering wave function where the spatial separation between the incoming neutron and proton is confined by the range of the n-p interaction, Vnp. By comparison with calculations based on the continuum discretized coupled channels method we show that the (d,p) transition amplitude is dominated by the first term of the expansion of the three-body wave function in a complete set of Weinberg states. We use the 132Sn(d,p)133Sn reaction at 30 and 100 MeV as examples of contemporary interest. The generality of this observed dominance and its implications for future theoretical developments are discussed.

    Abstract

    Newly published 42Si γ-ray spectra and a final-state-inclusive 42Si production cross section value, obtained in a higher-statistics intermediate-energy two-proton removal experiment from 44S, are considered in terms of the final-state-exclusive cross sections computed using proposed shell-model effective interactions for nuclei near N=28. Specifically, we give cross section predictions when using the two nucleon amplitudes of the two-proton overlaps 〈42Si(Jπ) | 44S〉 computed using the newly proposed sdpf-mu shell-model Hamiltonian. We show that these partial cross sections or their longitudinal momentum distributions should enable a less-tentative interpretation of the measured gamma-ray spectra and provide a more quantitative assessment of proposed shell-model Hamiltonians in this interesting and challenging region of the chart of nuclides.

(2012) 'One-neutron knockout from 51-55Sc'. European Physical Journal A: Hadrons and Nuclei, 48 (12) Article number 191

    Abstract

    Results are presented from a one-neutron knockout experiment at relativistic energies of $ \approx 420 A$ MeV on 51-55Sc using the GSI Fragment Separator as a two-stage magnetic spectrometer and the MINIBALL array for gamma-ray detection. Inclusive longitudinal momentum distributions and cross-sections were measured enabling the determination of the contributions corresponding to knockout from the $ \nu p_{1/2}$ , $ \nu p_{3/2}$ , (L = 1 and $ \nu f_{7/2}$ , $ \nu f_{5/2}$ (L = 3 neutron orbitals. The observed L = 1 and L = 3 contributions are compared with theoretical cross-sections using eikonal knockout theory and spectroscopic factors from shell model calculations using the GXPF1A interaction. The measured inclusive knockout cross-sections generally follow the trends expected theoretically and given by the spectroscopic strength predicted from the shell model calculations. However, the deduced L = 1 cross-sections are generally 30-40% higher while the L = 3 contributions are about a factor of two smaller than predicted. This points to a promotion of neutrons from the $ \nu f_{7/2}$ to the $ \nu p_{3/2}$ orbital indicating a weakening of the N = 28 shell gap in these nuclei. While this is not predicted for the phenomenological GXPF1A interaction such a weakening is predicted by recent calculations using realistic low-momentum interactions $ V_{low k}$ obtained by evolving a chiral N3LO nucleon-nucleon potential.

    Abstract

    The nuclear structure dependence of direct reactions that remove a pair of like or unlike nucleons from a fast 12C projectile beam are considered. Specifically, we study the differences in the two-nucleon correlations present and the predicted removal cross sections when using p-shell shell-model and multi-ℏω no-core shell-model (NCSM) descriptions of the two-nucleon overlaps for the transitions to the mass A=10 projectile residues. The NCSM calculations use modern chiral two-nucleon and three-nucleon (NN+3N) interactions. The np-removal cross sections to low-lying T=0, 10B final states are enhanced when using the NCSM two-nucleon amplitudes. The calculated absolute and relative partial cross sections to the low-energy 10B final states show a significant sensitivity to the interactions used, suggesting that assessments of the overlap functions for these transitions and confirmations of their structure could be made using final-state-exclusive measurements of the np-removal cross sections and the associated momentum distributions of the forward traveling projectile-like residues.

    Abstract

    We report final-state-exclusive measurements of the light charged fragments in coincidence with 26Ne residual nuclei following the direct two-proton removal from a neutron-rich 28Mg secondary beam. A Dalitz-plot analysis and comparisons with simulations show that a majority of the triple-coincidence events with two protons display phase-space correlations consistent with the (two-body) kinematics of a spatially correlated pair-removal mechanism. The fraction of such correlated events, 56(12)%, is consistent with the fraction of the calculated cross section, 64%, arising from spin S=0 two-proton configurations in the entrance-channel (shell-model) 28Mg ground state wave function. This result promises access to an additional and more specific probe of the spin and spatial correlations of valence nucleon pairs in exotic nuclei produced as fast secondary beams.

(2012) 'One- and two-neutron removal reactions from the most neutron-rich carbon isotopes'. Physical Review C: Nuclear Physics, 86 (5) Article number 054604

    Abstract

    The structure of 19,20,22C has been investigated using high-energy (around 240 MeV/nucleon) one- and two-neutron removal reactions on a carbon target. Measurements were made of the inclusive cross sections and momentum distributions for the charged residues. Narrow momentum distributions were observed for one-neutron removal from 19C and 20C and two-neutron removal from 22C. Two-neutron removal from 20C resulted in a relatively broad momentum distribution. The results are compared with eikonal-model calculations combined with shell-model structure information. The neutron removal cross sections and associated momentum distributions are calculated for transitions to both the particle-bound and particle-unbound final states. The calculations take into account the population of the mass A−1 reaction residues A−1C and, following one-neutron emission after one-neutron removal, the mass A−2 two-neutron removal residues A−2C. The smaller contributions of direct two-neutron removal, that populate the A−2C residues in a single step, are also computed. The data and calculations are shown to be in good overall agreement and consistent with the predicted shell-model ground-state configurations and one-neutron overlaps with low-lying states in 18−21C. These suggest significant νs1/22 valence neutron configurations in both 20C and 22C. The results for 22C strongly support the picture of 22C as a two-neutron halo nucleus with a dominant νs1/22 ground-state configuration.

    Abstract

    We discuss intermediate-energy single-nucleon removal reactions from deformed projectile nuclei. The removed nucleon is assumed to originate from a given Nilsson model single-particle state and the inclusive cross sections, to all rotational states of the residual nucleus, are calculated. We investigate the sensitivity of both the stripping cross sections and their momentum distributions to the assumed size of the model space in the Nilsson model calculations and to the shape of the projectile and residue. We show that the cross sections for small deformations follow the decomposition of the Nilsson state in a spherical basis. In the case of large and prolate projectile deformations the removal cross sections from prolate-like Nilsson states, having large values for the asymptotic quantum number nz, are reduced. For oblate-like Nilsson states, with small nz, the removal cross sections are increased. Whatever the deformation, the residue momentum distributions are found to remain robustly characteristic of the orbital angular momentum decomposition of the initial state of the nucleon in the projectile.

    Abstract

    The role of proton shell effects in the structure of the N=28 isotones 45Cl and 44S has been studied via one-proton knockout from 45Cl. We compare measured γ-ray intensities, inclusive and partial knockout cross sections, and the inclusive momentum distribution of outgoing 44S particles with shell-model and reaction-theory predictions. The strong population in this reaction of the recently identified 41+ state in 44S, identified through its subsequent γ-ray decay energy, makes a compelling case for a Jπ=3/2+ ground state in 45Cl.

    Abstract

    A systematic investigation of the inclusive cross sections for single-nucleon knockout reactions from p-shell nuclei has been performed. A total of seven reactions were studied for projectiles with masses between A = 7 and 10, having a wide range of nucleon separation energies. Results were obtained for a range of incident beam energies and targets. These differences were found to have a minimal impact on the deduced cross sections. Experimental results were compared to theoretical predictions based on variational Monte Carlo (VMC) nuclear structure calculations, whose radial overlap functions and neutron and proton densities were included in the reaction description. These results are compared with the conventional model, developed for heavier nuclei, that uses shell-model and Hartree-Fock structure inputs. The VMC-based calculations agreed with the experimental data for several reactions where deeply bound nucleons are removed but does not describe some of the more weakly bound nucleon removal cases with comparable accuracy.

    Abstract

    The cross sections for single-nucleon knockout from Ca-36 on a Be-9 target at 70 MeV/nucleon were measured to be sigma(exp)(-p) = 51.1 +/- 2.6 mb for proton knockout and sigma(exp)(-n) = 5.03 +/- 0.46 mb for neutron knockout. The spectroscopic factors and orbital angular momenta of the neutrons and protons removed from Ca-36, leading to bound A = 35 residues, were deduced by comparison of the experimental cross sections and longitudinal- momentum distributions to those calculated in an eikonal reaction theory, and found to be S(p, 1d(3/2)) = 0.79 +/- 0.04 and S(n, 2s(1/2)) = 0.23 +/- 0.02 (relative to independent-particle-model values and only including experimental contributions to the uncertainties). As found in previous knockout studies, the spectroscopic factor deduced for the deeply bound neutron was significantly reduced relative to shell-model calculations, a result at variance with dispersive optical model (DOM) extrapolations, which suggest a spectroscopic factor closer to 60% of the independent-particle-model value.

    Abstract

    Background: Thick-target-induced nucleon-adding transfer reactions onto energetic rare-isotope beams are an emerging spectroscopic tool. Their sensitivity to single-particle structure complements one-nucleon removal reaction capabilities in the quest to reveal the evolution of nuclear shell structure in very exotic nuclei. Purpose: Our purpose is to add intermediate-energy, carbon-target-induced one-proton pickup reactions to the arsenal of γ-ray-tagged direct reactions applicable in the regime of low beam intensities and to apply these for the first time to fp-shell nuclei. Methods: Inclusive and partial cross sections were measured for the 12C(48Cr,49Mn+γ)X and 12C(50Fe,51Co+γ)X proton pickup reactions at 56.7 and 61.2 MeV/nucleon, respectively, using coincident particle-γ spectroscopy at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory. The results are compared to reaction theory calculations using fp-shell-model nuclear structure input. For comparison with our previous work, the same reactions were measured on 9Be targets. Results: The measured partial cross sections confirm the specific population pattern predicted by theory, with pickup into high-ℓ orbitals being strongly favored, driven by linear and angular momentum matching. Conclusion: Carbon-target-induced pickup reactions are well suited, in the regime of modest beam intensity, to study the evolution of nuclear structure, with specific sensitivities that are well described by theory.

    Abstract

    There exists a class of nuclei that are obtained by adding one nucleon to a loosely-bound nucleon-core system, for example $^{12}$Be, $^9$C, $^{18}$Ne. For such nuclei, one-nucleon overlap integrals that represent single-particle motion can strongly differ from the standard ones due to the correlations between the two nucleons above the core. The possible non-standard overlap behaviour should be included in the interpretation of the experimental data derived from one nucleon removal reactions such as knockout, transfer and breakup, as well as the predictions of low-energy nucleon capture that leads to these nuclei. We investigate the non-standard behaviour within a three-body model and discuss the challenges associated with this problem.

    Abstract

    The r-process is supposed to be a primary process which assembles heavy nuclei from a photo-dissociated nucleon gas. Hence, the reaction flow through light elements can be important as a constraint on the conditions for the r-process. We have studied the impact of di-neutron capture and the neutron-capture of light (Z<10) elements on r-process nucleosynthesis in three different environments: neutrino-driven winds in Type II supernovae; the prompt explosion of low mass supernovae; and neutron star mergers. Although the effect of di-neutron capture is not significant for the neutrino-driven wind model or low-mass supernovae, it becomes significant in the neutron-star merger model. The neutron-capture of light elements, which has been studied extensively for neutrino-driven wind models, also impacts the other two models. We show that it may be possible to identify the astrophysical site for the main r-process if the nuclear physics uncertainties in current r-process calculations could be reduced.

    Abstract

    The breaking of the N=8 shell-model magic number in the 12Be ground state has been determined to include significant occupancy of the intruder d-wave orbital. This is in marked contrast with all other N=8 isotones, both more and less exotic than 12Be. The occupancies of the [FORMULA: SEE TEXT]orbital and the [FORMULA: SEE TEXT], intruder orbital were deduced from a measurement of neutron removal from a high-energy 12Be beam leading to bound and unbound states in 11Be.

    Abstract

    Preliminary results of one-neutron removal reactions on the nuclei Si and S at the intersection of the 1s0d and 1p0f neutron shells are reported. Momentum distributions of the projectile residues have been measured at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University. The populated final states in the neutron removal reactions could be resolved by measuring the γ rays from the de-excitation of bound states using a position-sensitive NaI(T1) array. Partial cross sections to specific final states have been deduced. A comparison of the cross sections in the reactions (Si,Si) and (S,S) shows differences that point to the influence of intruder configurations in the vicinity of Si.

    Abstract

    We present quantitative reaction cross section calculations for halo nuclei at high energy which retain the essential few-body correlations in such structures. Inclusion of these correlations leads to larger deduced halo radii. For three-body (n+n+core) projectiles, cross section measurements determine the rms hyperradius of the system and, given the core nucleus size, the projectile matter radius. The importance of finite range effects are estimated in the case of the lightest two-neutron-halo system He. Outstanding uncertainties are discussed.

    Abstract

    We report measurements of the cross section, proton polarization, and deuteron vector (A) and tensor (A) analyzing powers for the S(d, p))Sn reaction to the 1 2 ground state of Sn at E = 79.0 MeV. The polarization was observed as the analyzing power in the time-reversed Sn(p, d)Sn reaction. Adiabatic model calculations of the deuteron elastic channel reveal significant D-wave breakup contributions to the elastic cross section. Satisfactory agreement with the transfer reaction data is nevertheless obtained using adiabatic calculations which include only S-wave breakup and the bound deuteron D-state. The influence of the deuteron spin-orbit distortions on the polarization and vector analyzing power is reduced through a combination of the effects of angular momentum mismatch and deuteron channel absorption. © 1987.

    Abstract

    A second rank tensor potential for Li scattering is obtained within the framework of a single folding model by assuming an α + d cluster structure for Li. The intercluster wavefunction contains D-state and S-state components with amplitudes chosen to reproduce the experimental value of the Li Q-moment. Calculations are made for Li + Ni elastic scattering at E = 18.1 MeV. The puzzling behaviour of the measured tensor analysing power (T) is reproduced. © 1983.

    Abstract

    The (p,t) transfer reaction is being studied for its potential use in surrogate reaction analyses. A theoretical model has been developed to predict spin-parity distributions of final states excited in the reaction. The model, after comparisons with experimental data, may provide a predictive capability to identify candidate isotopes for measurement. Preliminary results are presented for the 92Zr(p,t)90Zr reaction at incident proton energy Ep=28.5MeV. New experimental data for this reaction at a similar energy, and for several other stable Zr isotopes, will soon be available.

    Abstract

    Many of the most exotic neutron-proton asymmetric nuclei are produced in relatively small numbers in high-energy fragmentation reactions. They are produced as fast secondary beams with energies of 100 MeV per nucleon or more. Developments made and recent results that both exploit and assess fast one- and two-nucleon removal reactions from such secondary beams are reviewed. This includes very recent work that interfaces the sudden, eikonal reaction models used with more ab-initio nuclear structure inputs. The potential use of neutron pick-up reactions to study particle-like states in exotic nuclei is also outlined.

    Abstract

    The most exotic neutron-proton asymmetric nuclei are produced most efficiently in high-energy fragmentation reactions. These exotic nuclei are produced as fast secondary beams with energies of order 100 MeV per nucleon or greater, and hence v/c > 0.3, often with relatively low intensities. For such beams one can exploit both the detection efficiency and the cross sections for fast one- and two-nucleon removal reactions. The reaction dynamics of these channels is relatively simple due to the fast (sudden), surface grazing, and forward travelling (eikonal) nature of the reaction mechanism. More recent work now interfaces these sudden, eikonal reaction models with more microscopic nuclear structure model input. The possible roles of nucleon and pair correlations and their observation using such reaction data are discussed.

    Abstract

    There are now several well-studied instances where very neutron-rich light nuclei at or near the neutron drip-line, such as 6He, 11Li and 14Be, have been found to have a Borromean three-body structure. Such systems are modelled effectively as a well-bound core nucleus plus two weakly-bound valence neutrons, where none of the two-body subsystems forms a bound state. It is now known that the heaviest particle-bound carbon isotope, 22C, shares these properties. We discuss a development of four-body reaction model calculations, using the fast adiabatic approximation, that is particularly well-suited for a quantitative analysis of reactions of such neutron-rich nuclei with a target nucleus at beam energies of order 100-300 MeV per nucleon; energies available at new and future radioactive ion beam (RIB) facilities. The 22C projectile wave function is calculated using the 20C core plus two-valence neutron three-body description.

    Abstract

    The recently developed four-body continuum-discretized coupled-channels (CDCC) method, making use of the binning procedure [1], is applied to the reaction 6He+64Zn at 13.6 MeV (around the Coulomb barrier). Excellent agreement with available elastic data [2] is found.

    Abstract

    A novel quantum dynamical model based on the dissipative quantum dynamics of open quantum systems is presented. It allows the treatment of both deep-inelastic processes and quantum tunneling (fusion) within a fully quantum mechanical coupled-channels approach. Model calculations show the transition from pure state (coherent) to mixed state (decoherent and dissipative) dynamics during a near-barrier nuclear collision. Energy dissipation, due to irreversible decay of giant-dipole excitations of the interacting nuclei, results in hindrance of quantum tunneling

    Two-proton removal reaction cross sections, from 208Pb at 1 GeV/nucleon, are estimated as an example of the direct population of (high-spin) seniority-2 isomeric states, here in 206Hg. Nucleon removal by both the stripping and diffractive mechanisms is considered. The cross sections in this specific (test) case are significant and can provide direct two-nucleon removal predictions of isomeric ratios

    Abstract

    The role of continuum states in nuclei is considered, along with use of breakup theories of stripping and diffractive dissociation in probing nuclear structure. In the breakup of three-body nuclei such as Borromean halo systems, both three-body and two-body continuum final states need to be modelled and measured.

    Abstract

    The momentum distributions of the residual nuclei after one-neutron removal, measured in coincidence with gamma rays, identify the excited levels of these residues. The resulting differential partial cross sections map the momentum content and structure of the removed-nucleon wave function and provide an exacting test of theory. Data for population of the C-14 and Be-10 ground states show an asymmetry that is incompatible with the currently used eikonal descriptions. A fully dynamical description of the elastic break-up mechanism provides an understanding of the new observation, which will be most pronounced for nuclear halo states, This interpretation is clarified by an analysis of the angular distribution of the heavy residues.

    Abstract

    Coulomb dissociation of one neutron halo nuclei ‘IBe and 15,1QC has been studied at energies around 70A MeV by kinematically complete measurements of breakup particles at RIKEN. The experiment of l1Be breakup on a Pb target aims at studying the characteristic features of low-lying El strength. In particular the effects of higher order excitation and nuclear contribution have been closely studies by using the impact parameter analysis. We have found that these contributions are very small, and the selection of the large impact parameter is useful to extract the spectroscopic information of the halo ground state. We have then successfully applied this analysis method to l”C and “C, where we have extracted the spectroscopic factor for the s-wave halo configuration. We also show preliminary results on the breakup of “Be on a carbon target in order to study the nuclear breakup mechanism and low-lying discrete states of the halo nucleus.

    Abstract

    Two-nucleon removal (or knock-out) reactions at intermediate energies are a developing tool for both nuclear spectroscopy and for the study of certain nucleon correlations in very exotic and some stable nuclei. We present an overview of these reactions with specific emphasis on the nature of the two-nucleon correlations that can be probed. We outline future possibilities and tests needed to fully establish these sensitivities.
