abstract

  • The 146Nd(d, t)145Nd reaction has been studied with 16 MeV deuterons with a vector polarization of ~0.75 from the McMaster University tandem Van de Graaff accelerator. Measurements were made at 13 angles from 5 to 45° using a magnetic spectrograph equipped with photographic emulsions in the focal plane. The measured analyzing powers for strongly populated levels are well described with standard distorted wave Born approximation calculations and made it possible to confirm previous spin assignments as well as give unambiguous assignments for some states for which the spin information was previously conflicting, incomplete, or lacking.
