A measurement of the (d, p) reaction in inverse kinematics at energies near the Coulomb barrier using a stable beam of 124Sn has been performed at ORNL's Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF). The sensitivity of proton angular distributions to the transferred angular momentum has been demonstrated. Spectroscopic factors have been extracted for three states and are in agreement with previous measurements made in normal kinematics. © Società Italiana di Fisica / Springer-Verlag 2005.
