Final state interaction or a 3H excited state? Academic Article uri icon


  • An inclusive -particle spectrum from the 1H( 6He,) reaction has been measured at a 6He laboratory energy of 23.9 MeV. A resonancelike structure is observed at an -particle lab energy of about 20 MeV, which corresponds to an energy of End=0.6 MeV in the n-d channel. An analysis of the spectrum shows that it cannot be explained by the effect of binary final-state interactions. The hypotheses that this structure represents (a) a new excited state of tritium or (b) a three- body final-state interaction are discussed.
