The 14N(7Be,8B)13C reaction and the 7Be(p,γ)8B S factor Academic Article uri icon


  • The [Formula Presented] reaction was studied using an 85 MeV [Formula Presented] radioactive beam. The asymptotic normalization coefficients for the virtual transitions [Formula Presented] were determined from the measured cross section. These coefficients specify the amplitude of the tail of the [Formula Presented] overlap function in the [Formula Presented] channel, and were used to calculate the astrophysical S factor for the direct capture reaction [Formula Presented] at solar energies [Formula Presented] We find that [Formula Presented] eV b. © 1999 The American Physical Society.
