We investigate the effects arising out of the $E1 - E2$ interference in the Coulomb dissociation of $^8$B at beam energies below and around 50 MeV/nucleon. The theory has been formulated within a first order semiclassical scheme of Coulomb excitation, in which both the ground state and the continuum state wave functions of $^8$B enter as inputs. We find that the magnitude of the interference could be large in some cases. However, there are some specific observables which are free from the… 


Electromagnetic excitation of 11Li.
A kinematically complete measurement of the Coulomb dissociation of 28 MeV/nucleon [sup 11]Li into [sup 9]Li and two neutrons by a Pb target indicates there is no directional correlation between the h Halo neutrons, and shows that the halo neutrons do not exist as a dineutron bound to a [sup 7]Li core.
