Asymptotic normalization coefficients for B-8 -> Be-7+p from a study of Li-8 -> Li-7+n Academic Article uri icon


  • Asymptotic normalization coefficients (ANCs) for [Formula Presented] have been extracted from the neutron transfer reaction [Formula Presented] at 63 MeV. These are related to the ANCs in [Formula Presented] using charge symmetry. We extract ANCs for [Formula Presented] which are in very good agreement with those inferred from proton transfer and breakup experiments. We have also separated the contributions from the [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] components in the transfer. We find the astrophysical factor for the [Formula Presented] reaction to be [Formula Presented] This is the first time that the rate of a direct capture reaction of astrophysical interest has been determined through a measurement of the ANCs in the mirror system. 2003 The American Physical Society.
