Abstract

A series of proposed bands in 18O with potential nuclear molecular structures, such as 14C ⊗ - α or 12C ⊗ - 2n ⊗ - α, are being investigated. This was done through the use of the Q3D magnetic spectrograph at the Maier-Leibnitz Laboratory in Munich in conjunction with an array of double-sided silicon strip detectors (DSSDs). These detectors allowed for high resolution reconstruction of detected particles, enabling measurement of the branching ratios of the states that make up these bands. Here, a method is discussed for extracting the branching ratios of both material particles as well as γ-particles using the DSSD array to detect only charged decay fragments.
