Supported by a National Science Foundation Research at Undergraduate Institutions (NSF RUI) grant (PHY-1617250).

Project Description

Following an experiment at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University in October 2016, we study the excited states of the neutron-rich isotope 43P via inverse-kinematic proton scattering with the GRETINA y-ray tracking array. We will discuss preliminary analysis and results, including measured cross sections for populating excited states of 43P.
