Thesis: Pionic fusion in light-ion systems
Promotor(s): prof. H. Löhner
Faculty: Mathematics and Natural Sciences
The pion plays a significant role in modelling the nuclear force and explaining nuclear structure and the interaction between nucleons. The production of pions near the threshold is an extremely coherent process which occurs at large momentum transfers, and therefore, is a powerful and highly selective tool to study short range phenomena and collective processes in nuclei. In order to study the collective properties of nuclei, an almost complete data set for the pionic fusion reaction 6Li(4He, pi0)10B* with well-defined initial and final state configurations has been measured. A unique experimental setup was employed to detect all the reaction products in over-determined kinematics in order to obtain the full angular distribu- tion of cross section. In this thesis, the results of the 6Li(4He, pi0)10B* experiment have been discussed in the context of previous pionic fusion experiments and a parallel experiment 4He(3He, pi0)7Be at KVI which is the subject of another thesis.
The team developed a protocol to share delicate information via a biological QR-code.
