An experiment was performed to study the 9Be(6Li,6Li)9Be∗ → α + α + n reaction. This experiment was designed to study the breakup of 9Be in an attempt to quantify the breakup yield for each of the decay channels (n+ 8Be, n+ 8Be2 , and α + 5He) from the low-lying states. The results suggest that the population of states in 9Be from 1.68 to 11.28 MeV can be(More)
The breaking of the N=8 shell-model magic number in the 12Be ground state has been determined to include significant occupancy of the intruder d-wave orbital. This is in marked contrast with all other N=8 isotones, both more and less exotic than 12Be. The occupancies of the [FORMULA: SEE TEXT]orbital and the [FORMULA: SEE TEXT], intruder orbital were(More)
Fast-neutron-induced fission of ^{238}U at an energy just above the fission threshold is studied with a novel technique which involves the coupling of a high-efficiency γ-ray spectrometer (MINIBALL) to an inverse-kinematics neutron source (LICORNE) to extract charge yields of fission fragments via γ-γ coincidence spectroscopy. Experimental data and fission(More)
A compact, quasi-4π position sensitive silicon array, TIARA, designed to study direct reactions induced by radioactive beams in inverse kinematics is described here. The Transfer and Inelastic All-angle Reaction Array (TIARA) consists of 8 resistive-strip silicon detectors forming an octagonal barrel around the target and a set of double-sided silicon-strip(More)
