Simple Method for Investigating the Parentage of States Using Two-Nucleon Transfer Reactions Academic Article uri icon


  • We describe a promising method for investigating the parentage of nuclear states. It involves the simultaneous observation of (p,t) and (p,He3) reactions on 0+ (T>0) targets producing analog final states with the same isospin as the target. Experimental results for 20<~A<~36 (T=1) reveal a number of states with apparently very simple parentage for which j2 "paired" pickup predominates. 1969 The American Physical Society.
