What Can We Learn from Transfer, and How Is Best to Do It?

Abstract

An overview of the experimental aspects of nucleon transfer reactions with radioactive beams is presented, aimed principally at a researcher who is beginning their work in this area. Whilst the physics motivation and the means of theoretical interpretation are briefly described, the emphasis is on the experimental techniques and the quantities that can be measured. General features of the reactions which affect experimental design are highlighted and explained. A range of experimental choices for performing the experiments is described, and the reasons for making the different choices are rationalised and discussed. It is often useful to detect gamma-rays from electromagnetic transitions in the final nucleus, both to improve the precision and resolution of the excitation energy measurements and to assist in the identification of the observed levels. Several aspects related to gamma-ray detection and angular correlations are therefore included. The emphasis is on single-nucleon transfer reactions, and mostly on (d,p) transfer to produce nuclei that are more neutron-rich, but there are also brief discussions of other types of transfer reactions induced by both light ions and heavy ions.

Thank you to all of my colleagues who have assisted with putting together, performing and analysing the results from the experiments described in this work: these include N.A. Orr, M. Labiche, R.C. Lemmon, C.N. Timis, B. Fernandez-Dominguez, J.S. Thomas, S.M. Brown, G.L. Wilson, C. Aa. Diget, the VAMOS group at GANIL and the TIGRESS group at TRIUMF, the nuclear theory group at Surrey, plus all of the other colleagues from the TIARA, MUST2, TIGRESS and Charissa collaborations: we together weathered many a storm [104].
