Abstract

Chapter I

Introduction

The study of the resonances in the scattering cross section of the p + O16 reaction can reveal information regarding the energy levels of the compound nucleus F17. The analysis is simplified because of the zero spin of the O16 nucleus. Also, the low binding energy of the proton added to O16 allows examination of the low-lying energy levels in F17.1 The reaction has been intensively investigated at the University of Wisconsin in a series of experiments using an electrostatic accelerator as a source of protons.
