Coulomb dissociation is an especially simple and important reaction mechanism. Since the perturbation due to the electric field of the nucleus is exactly known, firm conclusions can be drawn from such measurements. Electromagnetic matrix elements and astrophysical S-factors for radiative capture processes can be extracted from experiments. We describe the basic theory, new results concerning higher order effects in the dissociation of neutron halo nuclei, and briefly review the experimental… 
Higher order effects in electromagnetic dissociation of neutron halo nuclei
We investigate higher order effects in electromagnetic dissociation of neutron halo nuclei using a simple and realistic zero range model for the neutron-core interaction. In the sudden (or Glauber)
Astronuclear Physics: A tale of the atomic nuclei in the skies
A century ago, nuclear physics entered astrophysics, giving birth to a new field of science referred to as "Nuclear Astrophysics". With time, it developed at an impressive pace into a vastly inter-
Coulomb breakup of one-neutron halo nuclei
The Coulomb breakup of one-neutron halo nuclei is studied within the postform distorted-wave Born approximation (DWBA) theory. A method of evaluation of the DWBA breakup amplitude in momentum space
Breakup reactions of light and medium mass neutron drip line nuclei
Abstract The formal theories of breakup reactions are reviewed. The direct breakup mechanism that is formulated within the framework of the post-form distorted-wave Born approximation, is discussed
Effective-range approach and scaling laws for electromagnetic strength in neutron-halo nuclei.
Low-lying multipole strength in neutron-halo nuclei is studied and the total E1 strength is related to the root-mean-square radius of the neutron wave function in the ground state and shows corresponding scaling properties.
16O Coulomb dissociation: towards a new means to determine the 12C+α fusion rate in stars
Abstract A feasibility study was made of an important aspect of the Coulomb-dissociation method, which has been proposed for the determination of the rate of the astrophysically important 12 C( α , 
The Trojan horse method in nuclear astrophysics
The Trojan-Horse method is an indirect approach to determine the low-energy astrophysical S-factor of direct nuclear reactions by studying closely related transfer reactions with three particles in
Reactions with fast radioactive beams of neutron-rich nuclei
Abstract.The neutron dripline has presently been reached only for the lightest nuclei up to the element oxygen. In this region of light neutron-rich nuclei, scattering experiments are feasible even
Probing the halo structure
Abstract Halo nuclei are characterized by outer nucleons that reside mostly in the classically forbidden region. The large average distance of halo nucleons suggests the decoupling of core and halo
Estimation of the nuclear distortion in the Coulomb breakup of 6Li into α + d in the field of 208Pb ion
In this article the results of the evaluation of the contribution of nuclear disintegration, based on the basis of diffraction theory in the 208Pb(6Li, αd)208Pb Coulomb breakup at an energy of 156
