Abstract

Measurements have been made of single-neutron stripping and pickup in the system 58Ni+208Pb at 10.3 and 17.4 MeV/nucleon. The complex spectra observed are found to be dominated by transfers from the valence shell of the donor to bound and unbound shells of the recipient. The data were analyzed with the distorted-wave Born approximation together with a dynamic polarization potential. The suggestion is made that the large yields seen at forward scattering angles may arise from increases in the real nuclear potential which might occur when a neutron jumps to an unoccupied major shell.
