Abstract.

The 10B(p,\(\alpha_{1}\))7Be reaction has been studied for the first time via the Trojan Horse Method (THM) applied to the 2H(10B,\(\alpha\)7Be)n quasi-free three-body process. The present experiment allowed for a clear separation between \( \alpha_{0}\) and \(\alpha_{1}\) channels thanks to the improved energy resolution with respect to previous THM studies of the 2H(10B,\(\alpha\)7Be)n reaction. The extracted half-off-energy-shell cross section was found to be characterized by several structures attributable to the population of 11C. In particular, six resonances have been observed at 10.086, 10.352, 10.525, 10.686, 10.841 and 10.976 MeV 11C excitation energy.
