Probing neutron pair transfer with borromean isotopes of helium

Abstract : Recent developments in reaccelerated beams and the associated improvement in experimental techniques have now made it possible to measure the pair and single neutron transfer reactions involving short-lived nuclei far from the valley of stabil-ity. Reactions involving Borromean nuclei, such as 6,8He and 11Li, whose binding arises essentially from pairing correlations and can be characterized as a pure embodiment of the Cooper effect, provide an ideal laboratory towards probing features of pairing correlations in a dynamical regime different from macroscopic superconductors. Here we present an overview of experimental challenges and the progress made in the deconvolution of one-and two-neutron transfer cross sec-tions using beams of 6,8He, on targets with A > 50 in the vicinity of the Coulomb barrier.
