We report here on experiments with radioactive 21Na and 7Be beams performed by Colorado School of Mines students at the ISAC facility of TRIUMF and the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) of ORNL. At TRIUMF, the DRAGON recoil separator and its segmented BGO array were used to investigate higher energy resonances in the reaction H(21Na, γ)22Mg. Using the HRIBF we performed an experiment with a 7Be ion beam to measure scattering off Hydrogen and Carbon. Both elastic 7Be + p scattering and for the first time resonant inelastic scattering 7Be(p, p′)7Be* were observed. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
