Abstract

We have studied the C15(d,p)C16 reaction in inverse kinematics using the Helical Orbit Spectrometer at Argonne National Laboratory. Prior studies of electromagnetic-transition rates in C16 suggested an exotic decoupling of the valence neutrons from the core in that nucleus. Neutron-adding spectroscopic factors give a different probe of the wave functions of the relevant states in C16. Shell-model calculations reproduce both the present transfer data and the previously measured transition rates, suggesting that C16 may be described without invoking very exotic phenomena. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
