Presented during the 20th Annual Summer Fellows Symposium, July 20, 2018 at Ursinus College.

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 (NSCL), we discuss preliminary analysis and results for excited states of the isotope 42S populated via inverse-kinematics proton scattering. The experiment was conducted with the NSCL/Ursinus College hydrogen target and the GRETINA gamma-ray tracking array. We report the proton-scattering deformation length of the 2+1 excitation in 42S and compare our results with other neutron-rich sulfur isotopes.
