Coupled-channels analysis of energy-dependent isospin violation in the 12C(d, α) 10B(1.74 MeV, T = 1) reaction
We have studied the isospin non-conserving 12C(d, α) 10B(1.74 MeV, 0 +, T= 1) reaction at several incident energies of 9 ≦ Ed ≦ 16 MeV in terms of a coupled-channels method. The reaction processes involved in the present analysis are the successive single-nucleon pick-up processes as well as the inelastic scattering of deuterons from 12C. It is assumed that the isospin violation should occur in the intermediate mirror cluster states of 3He + 11B and t + 11C, due to the Coulomb interaction. The calculation reproduces fairly well the observed features of the reaction, i.e. the decreasing cross section with increasing incident energy, and the variation of the angular distribution. We also note that the calculation shows the energy-dependent localization of isospin violation in the angular momentum space, i.e. a specifically narrow localization at the lower incident energies studied and its broadening at the higher energies. This fact is associated with the variation of the angular distribution from a forward-backward symmetry at the lower incident energies to a forward peak at the higher energies.
