Alpha-particle stripping to Ne21
From a study of the O17(Li6,d) reaction at 32 MeV, angular distributions and α-particle spectroscopic strengths have been extracted for states below 4.6-MeV excitation in Ne21. The 52+ state at 0.35 MeV is populated largely via L=0, and five states with Jπ from 12+ to 92+ largely via L=2. These results are in reasonable agreement with predictions of SU(3) shell-model calculations and at the same time are suggestive of a simple weak-coupling picture. Observation of L=0 for the transition to the 4.52-MeV level, previously assigned 32+ or 52+, allows a definite assignment of Jπ=52+.
