Neutron transfer reactions were performed in inverse kinematics using radioactive ion beams of mSn, 130Sn, and 134Te and deuterated polyethylene targets. Preliminary results are presented. The Q-value spectra for 133Sn,131 Sn and 135Te reveal a number of previously unobserved peaks. The angular distributions are compatible with the expected lf7/2 nature of the ground state of 133Sn, and 2p3/2 for the 3.4 MeV state in m131 Sn. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
