Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cross sections have been measured for 65 MeV [Formula Presented] scattering to the [Formula Presented]B ground and first four excited states. The 1.74 MeV excited state results provide the first measurement of the energy dependence of the isovector spin-flip strength parameter. Our analysis indicates that the observed empirical enhancement of the isovector spin-flip strength has little or no dependence on energy at and below resonance. A mass dependence for the empirical enhancement factor may exist.
