The F19 nucleus has been studied extensively. However, there have been no comprehensive experimental studies of F18+n single-particle components in F19, and no measure of neutron vacancies in the F18 ground state, as such experiments require a (radioactive) F18 target or beam. We have used the H2(F18,p)F19 reaction to selectively populate states in F19 that are of F18+n character. The 108.5-MeV radioactive F18+9 beam was provided by the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Proton-recoil coincidence data were taken for both α-decaying and particle-stable final states. Angular distributions and spectroscopic factors were measured for nine proton groups, corresponding to 13 states in F19. The results are compared to shell model calculations.
