The cascading 3.21 and 4.44 MeV electric quadrupole transitions have been observed from the Hoyle state at 7.65 MeV excitation energy in ^{12}C, excited by the ^{12}C(p,p^{'}) reaction at 10.7 MeV proton energy. From the proton-γ-γ triple coincidence data, a value of Γ_{rad}/Γ=6.2(6)×10^{-4} was obtained for the radiative branching ratio. Using our results, together with Γ_{π}^{E0}/Γ from Eriksen et al. [Phys. Rev. C 102, 024320 (2020)PRVCAN2469-998510.1103/PhysRevC.102.024320] and the…

Multi-probe study of excited states in $\mathrm{^{12}C}$: disentangling the sources of monopole strength between the Hoyle state and $E_{x} = 13$ MeV
• Materials Science
• 2020
Knowledge of the low-lying monopole strength in $\mathrm{^{12}C}$, the Hoyle state in particular, is crucial for our understanding of both the astrophysically important $3\alpha$ reaction and of
