Investigating the pygmy dipole resonance in 96Mo using the (p,d) reaction Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract The pygmy dipole resonance (PDR) thus far has been described microscopically as a cluster of 1 states around the neutron separation energy (S n ). This study is an attempt to probe the nature of the PDR, specifically the single-particle or collective character of these states. One-step transfer reactions represents a good probe for this study due to their selectivity in exciting single-particle states. The 97Mo(p,d) 96Mo and 95Mo(d,p)96Mo reactions, were used to populate the nucleus of interest. The experiment was conducted at the INFN-LNS facility in Catania, Italy. The ejectiles were momentum-analysed by the MAGNEX spectrometer and detected by its focal-plane detector. In this paper, preliminary results for the 97Mo(p, d) 96Mo reaction will be presented.
