  1. Reaction Dynamics studies with 6,7Li and 9Be nuclei at Pelletron, Mumbai, India Vivek Parkar University of Huelva, Spain Previous affiliation : Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India 6th Dec 2011 ISOLDE Workshop, CERN

  2. Outline of Talk: • Introduction to 14UD Pelletron facility, Mumbai, India • Studies with stable weakly bound (6,7Li and 9Be) nuclei: • Fusion cross-sections • Inclusive and exclusive breakup • Dipole Polarizabilities of 7Li and 9Be • Future prospects with light RIBsat ISOLDE

  3. Started in 1988

  4. A] Basic Research • Reaction studies near barrier • Fission studies • Nuclear Structure • Atomic Physics • Radio Chemistry studies • Magnetism • B] Applied Research • Radiation damage studies • Radiation Biology • Accelerator Mass Spectroscopy (AMS) • Track etched membrane • Bio-environmental studies

  5. Reactions with stable weakly bound nuclei Advantagelarge intensity and good beam quality Low breakup threshold Stable ions 6Li a+d, Sad=1.48 MeV 7Li a+t, Sat=2.47 MeV 9Be a+a+n, San=1.57 MeV • Study effect of breakup channel on elastic scattering and fusion cross-sections • Inclusive and exclusive breakup studies Next step: Reaction dynamics with light RIBs

  6. Fusion cross-sections from online and offline g-ray measurements Fusion in presence of breakup channel enhance fusion due to coupling OR suppress fusion due to loss of flux Motivation : 6,7Li+144,152Sm 6,7Li+90Zr 6,7Li+198Pt 6,7Li+165Ho 6,7Li+159Tb 9Be+124Sn 9Be+89Y Online g-ray technique: When ER is short lived (few secs)  g-ray de-excitation from the excited states of that ER Offline g-ray technique: When ER is long lived (few mnts - days)  Measurement of g-rays after beta decay/Electron capture sFusion = ΣsER

  7. Target & Catcher F.C. Beam Evaporation Residue Measurement Off-beam intensities of charac- teristic g-lines from b decay of ER and half-life were measured

  9. Projectile breakup vs. target deformation Suppression (~28%) at E>Vb breakup Enhancement at E<Vb  target deformation Effect of breakup and deformation coexist P. K. Rath et al., Nucl Phys. A (Accepted)

  11. Systematic of fusion suppression factor (i) For a particular projectile, the suppression factor is more or less independent of the product ZPZT, (ii) suppression increases with decreasing breakup threshold of the projectile.

Projectile breakup Direct breakup: Projectile breaks up directly into fragments at any excitation energy larger than breakup threshold. a 209Bi 6Li d 6Li Sequential breakup: Projectile excited to resonant state followed by breakup, or it can exchange a few nucleon with the target and then breaks up. 209Bi a 209Bi a 6Li n 6Li p d 5Li 6Li* 6Li*

  22. Elastic scattering Dipole polarizability of 7Li, 9Be

  23. Introduction • Centre of matter distributions and centre of charge distributions of a nucleus do not coincide (e.g. deuteron, 7Li, 6He, 11Li etc.) in the presence of strong electric field. • Transition between states of opposite parity. (For normal nuclei states of opposite parity are at high excitation energy) • For weakly bound nuclei  low breakup threshold, continuum states of opposite parity are nearby. • The effect is very small. (2% change in elastic cross section of d + 208Pb (αd=0.70 fm3), Similar effect expected for 7Li + 208Pb (α7Li =0.018-0.048 fm3).
