Abstract

Neutron-capture reactions on neutron-rich nuclei are important to understand r-process nucleosynthesis, as well as applied needs such as stewardship science and nuclear energy. Because of the short half-lives of these species, it is not possible to measure these reactions directly with neutron beams on unstable targets. The (d,pγ) reaction with radioactive ion beams has been proposed as a surrogate reaction for (n,γ). Experiments to develop (d,pγ) techniques with radioactive ion beams and to demonstrate the efficacy of the (d,pγ) reaction as a surrogate for (n,γ) are discussed. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
