As one of a series of physics cases to demonstrate the unique benefit of the new Jet Experiments in Nuclear Structure and Astrophysics (JENSA) gas-jet target for enabling next-generation transfer reaction studies, the N14 (p, t)N12 reaction was studied for the first time, using a pure jet of nitrogen, in an attempt to resolve conflicting information on the structure of N12. A potentially new level at 4.561-MeV excitation energy in N12 was found.
