Abstract

Abstract Resonances were found in the 120° and 160° excitation functions for the 19F(α, p o) 22Ne reaction between E = 2.5 and 5.0 MeV corresponding to 23Na levels at excitation energies between 12.56 and 14.51 MeV. Twenty-one on-resonance angular distributions were analysed with single-level and two-level theory to extract 23Na spin and parity information. The results of an earlier experiment were analysed by the same procedure, extending the diagnostics down to a 23Na excitation energy of 11.55 MeV. The analysis incorporated an optical potential for the α-particle consistent with previous channel-spin- 1 2 reaction studies and α-induced reaction data.
