Abstract

The isovector 0[Formula Presented] to 0[Formula Presented] transition in the [Formula Presented]O[Formula Presented]F (g.s.) reaction was studied at 79 MeV. Differential cross sections were extracted for the transitions to the low-lying complex of 0[Formula Presented], 1[Formula Presented], 2[Formula Presented], and 3[Formula Presented] states in [Formula Presented]F at 12 laboratory angles from 0.3[Formula Presented] to 63[Formula Presented] which correspond to momentum transfers from 0.21 to 2.0 fm[Formula Presented]. An energy resolution of 140 keV (FWHM) was achieved which was sufficient to separate the yields for each of these four states. Distorted-wave-impulse-approximation (DWIA) calculations were performed and compared with the extracted cross sections for these four transitions. The DWIA calculations with the effective interaction of Franey and Love provide a good description of the experimental measurements for the 0[Formula Presented] transition at low momentum transfer, but overestimate the data at larger momentum transfer. The experimental results for the 1[Formula Presented], 2[Formula Presented], and 3[Formula Presented] transitions are described reasonably well by the DWIA calculations.
