The Complementarity Between Neutron Capture and Heavy-Ion Reactions in Nuclear Structure Studies

  • O. W. B. Schult


For the study of the structure of atomic nuclei a great variety of methods are employed. In the experimental field, the spectroscopy of radioactive decay, the spectroscopy of the radiation following neutron capture, conventional reaction studies with light charged particles, investigations with heavy-ion reactions, high-resolution electron-scattering experiments, photonuclear reaction studies, reactions with unstable particles at high-energy accelerators, and optical methods, in particular with lasers,1) yield a wealth of data which contain information about nuclear structure.
