Abstract

Angular distributions have been measured at a bombarding energy of 28 MeV for the reaction Mg24(d,Li6)Ne20, populating most of the known levels below 9.1 MeV excitation. Results were compared with distorted wave Born-approximation calculations, and α spectroscopic factors extracted. Those for the g.s. band are in reasonable agreement with theoretical predictions. Members of the 7.20-MeV band are found to possess very large spectroscopic factors, in agreement with the core-excited nature of this band. NUCLEAR REACTIONS Mg24(d,Li6), E=28.0 MeV; measured σ(Θ). Ne20 deduced levels, Sα. DWBA analysis.
