The (n,p) Reaction on Light N=Z Nuclei at 60 MeV

The excitation of highly collective giant resonance states via inelastic electron and hadron scattering has received consi­derable attention recently.1,2 These measurements supplement earlier photo-nuclear3 and nucleon-capture4 data. Population of the analogs of giant resonances by radiative pion5 and muon6 capture and by charge exchange reactions has extended the scope of such studies. Pion capture and charge-exchange reactions with ΔT3 = +1 [e.g. (n,p) and (t,h)] offer the advantage of populating only the analogs of isovector excitations. Charge exchange react­ions also allow the study of cross section variation with momentum transfer via the measurements of angular distributions, and hence determination of resonance multipolarities.
