Polarization transfer in (d,n) reactions on light nuclei at =0°


Journal Article

Transverse vector polarization transfer coefficients Kyy have been measured at a reaction angle of 0°for the processes C12(d,n)N13, N14(d,n)O15, O16(d,n)F17, and Si28(d,n)P29. The deuteron beam energy ranged from about 5 to 15 MeV for most cases. For the C12(d,n)N13 reaction an excitation function of the differential cross section at 0°also was obtained from 6 to 14 MeV for the ground state and first excited state transitions. The polarization transfer coefficients were all positive and typically just slightly lower than the value of 23. This indicates that the contribution from spin transfer s=32 is small at 0°. Theoretical predictions of Kyy (0°) using the distorted-wave Born approximation agree with the data to within about 10%. NUCLEAR REACTIONS C12, N14, O16, Si28 (d,n), E=5-15 MeV; measured polarization transfer Kyy(0°). C12(d,n), E=6-14 MeV; measured (0°).
