Abstract.

The PRISMA spectrometer’s response function was successfully applied to match three angular and magnetic settings over a wide angular range for measurements of quasi-elastic reactions in 40Ar + 208Pb . The absolute scale of cross sections has been obtained by using the Rutherford cross section at the forward angles and the information from the energy distributions measured with the spectrometer without and with coincidences with the CLARA \( \gamma\)-array. The semi-classical model GRAZING has been used to test the unfolding procedure and for comparison with the corrected cross sections.
