Experimental and theoretical study of the 2 H(d→,γ)4 He reaction below Ec.m.=60 keV


Journal Article

New measurements of the analyzing powers Ay and T20 have been obtained for the 2H(d, γ)4He reaction at a laboratory beam energy of 115 keV. A transition matrix element analysis results in a unique solution which indicates that the reaction proceeds by 55% E2, 29% E1, and 16% M2 radiation. These results are shown to be in good agreement with the results of a new refined resonating group model calculation. The impact of these results on the extrapolated value of the astrophysical 5 factor for this reaction is discussed.
