Searching for resonance in the unbound 6Be and 5Li nuclei Academic Article uri icon


  • Resonances in 6Be and 5Li have been investigated by deuteron transfer reactions with radioactive ion beams, 2H(8B,)6Be, 2H(7Be,)5Li, respectively. There is an indication of a possible resonance at excitation energy of 9.6 MeV in 6Be, just below the 3He+3He threshold. The structure of the 6Li nucleus has been also investigated by the neutron transfer reaction 3He(7Li,)6Li. In 6Li, a new resonance is observed at about 12.4 MeV in excitation energy and the presence of a resonance at 15.2 MeV is confirmed. The data are preliminary and a detailed analysis is in progress. The instalation of a Radioactive Ion Beam facility in Brazil (RIBRAS) is also reported.
