A study of the 19F(6Li, d)23Na reaction at 36 MeV
The reaction 19F(6Li, d)236Na has been studied at a 6Li energy of 36 MeV and a finite range distorted wave analysis assuming a direct cluster transfer has been used to extract from the data α-particle spectroscopic strengths for levels populated below 5 MeV of excitation. The ground state strength is very weak relative to the corresponding 16O(6Li, d) result and is in good agreement with the pure symmetry SU(3) prediction. However, relative a-particle spectroscopic strengths to excited states disagree with the SU(3) predictions probably because of very low absolute strengths. © 1979.
