Nuclear Structure and Reactions


We have calculated the3He(3He, 2p)4He and3H(3H, 2n)4He reaction cross sections at low energies within the microscopic multichannel resonating group method. For both reactions, we find good agreement with experiment. For the3H(3H, 2n)4He reaction, our calculated energy dependence reproduces that of each individual low-energy experimental data set, except for a normalization constant. Using this fact, we derive at a low-energy3H(3H, 2n)4He rate by taking the averaged mean of these fits.
