In neutron capture for magic-shell nuclei the direct reaction mechanism can be important and may even dominate. As an example we investigated the reaction {sup 48}Ca({ital n},{gamma}){sup 49}Ca for projectile energies below 250 keV in a direct capture model using the folding procedure for optical and bound state potentials. The obtained theoretical cross sections are in agreement with the experimental data showing the dominance of the direct reaction mechanism in this case. The above method was…

Study of the N = 28 shell closure in the Ar isotopic chain
Abstract.The structure of the neutron-rich nucleus 47Ar has been investigated through the d( 46Ar, 47Ar)p transfer reaction. The radioactive beam of 46Ar at 10A·MeV was provided by the SPIRAL
Study of 45Ar through (d, p) reaction at SPIRAL
The structure of the neutron-rich nucleus 45Ar has been investigated through the d(44Ar,45Ar)p transfer reaction. Radioactive beam of 44Ar at 10 A MeV has been provided by the SPIRAL facility at
Systematical law of (n, γ) reaction cross sections of even-even nuclei
We have derived a formula for the neutron radiative capture cross section in the framework of a statistical model approach to nuclear reactions. Based on this formula, new systematics are established
Effects of nonlocality of nuclear potentials on direct capture reactions
Calculations of the direct radiative capture reactions are made for the $^{48}$Ca$(n,\gamma)^{49}$Ca, $^7$Li$(n,\gamma)^8$Li and $^{12}$C$(p,\gamma)^{13}$N reactions with the Perey-Buck type nonlocal
Transfer reactions for nuclear astrophysics
Direct measurements of cross sections at stellar energies are very challenging - if at all possible. This is essentially due to the very low cross-sections of the reactions of interest (especially
Transfer Reactions As a Tool in Nuclear Astrophysics
Nuclear reaction rates are one of the most important ingredients in describing how stars evolve. The study of the nuclear reactions involved in different astrophysical sites is thus mandatory to
