Multichannel study of the $^{13}C(\alpha,n)^{16}$O and $^{16}O(n,\gamma)^{17}$O reactions


The $^{13}C(\alpha,n)^{16}O reaction is investigated in a microscopic two-cluster model with an effective interaction recently developed for transfer reactions. The wave functions are defined in the generator coordinate method. The basis includes all $^{13}C+\alpha$ and $^{16}O+n$ channels with $^{13}$C and $^{16}$O described in the p shell. Particle-hole excitations in the sd shell are also taken into account in order to include the $^{16}O(3^-)+n$ channel. The $^{17}$O spectroscopy is in good agreement with experiment. In particular, the width of the astrophysically relevant 1/2_2^+ state is well reproduced (\Gamma =121 keV as compared to the experimental value \Gamma =124±12 keV). The calculation of the $^{13}C(\alpha,n)^{16}$O S factor shows the importance of the 3/2_3^+ resonance, and provides $S(0.2 MeV)=2.1×10^6$ MeV b, slightly lower than the NACRE recommended value (2.5×10^6 MeV b). The same model is applied to the $^{16}O(n,\gamma)^{17}$O radiative-capture reaction at thermal and astrophysical energies.
