The 12B excitation energy spectrum has been obtained from coincidence measurements of the 9Be + 7Li → 2α + 8Li reaction at E0 = 52 MeV. The decay of the states at excitations between 10 and 16 Mev into α + 8Li has been observed for the first time. Observed α-decay indicates possible cluster structure of the 12B excited states. The influence of these states on the cross-section of the astrophysically important 8Li(α,n)11B and 9Be + t reactions is discussed and the results are compared with…

A new measurement of the astrophysical 8Li(d, t)7Li reaction
Abstract The excitation function of the 8 Li(d, t) 7 Li reaction was directly measured using 8 Li beam irradiating a deuterated polyethylene target at center-of-mass system beam energies ( E cm )
Role of exotic cluster structures in astrophysics: the case of 8Li(α,n)11B
• Physics
• 2012
The 8Li(?,n)11B reaction at the center-of-mass Ecm=0.3?2?MeV is of key importance in nuclear astrophysics, as it is a possible channel to bypass the A=8 mass gap during the primordial nucleosynthesis

A solution of the large discrepancy existing between inclusive and exclusive measurements of the 8Li + 4He → 11B + n reaction cross section at E cm < 3 MeV is evaluated. This problem has profound
Toward correction-free 8Li(, n)11B data at the Gamow energy of explosive nucleosynthesis
The 8Li+4He → 11B+n reaction inside the center-of-mass energy region Ecm = 0.5–2.5 MeV, corresponding to the temperature range T9 = 1–5, is of relevant interest in the fields of nuclear cosmology and
Alpha-decay of excited states in C-11 and B-11
Abstract Studies of the 16O(9Be, α7Be)14C and 7Li(9Be, α7Li)5He reactions at E beam = 70 MeV have been performed using resonant particle spectroscopy techniques. The 11C excited states decaying into
The Inverse Kinematics Thick Target scattering method as a tool to study cluster states in exotic nuclei
The inverse kinematics thick target scattering method (TTIK) was used to measure the 8Li resonant elastic scattering on a 4He target in order to investigate 8Li-α cluster configurations in excited

α-5He decaying states and the ground-state rotational band of 9Be
In a measurement of the 9Be(7Li, 7Liα)αn reaction at Ei = 52 MeV it is unambigously established for the first time that the 9Be excited states around 6.5 and 11.3 MeV decay into the α + 5He channel.
