2nd Workshop on State of the Art in Nuclear Cluster Physics Brussels, BELGIUM, MAY 25-28, 2010
The beta-decay is a useful tool to study the peculiar features present in light exotic nuclei, such as halos and cluster structures. The large Q-values and low breakup thresholds in the daughter nuclei allow channels with feeding to continuum states and delayed emission of nucleons and light ions. We report experimental results obtained using a technique where the radioactive nuclei are implanted in a finely segmented detector, and the decay channels are identified through the correlation between the implanted nuclei and subsequent decays. Decays involving cluster and halo states in C-12, He-6, Li-11 and Be-11 were measured.
