1 Alpha Stucture of 12 B Studied by Elastic Scattering of 8 Li Excyt Beam on 4 He Thick Target M.G. Pellegriti Laboratori Nazionali del Sud – INFN Dipartimento di Fisica ed Astronomia, Università di Catania 10 th International Spring Seminar on Nuclear Physics Vietri sul Mare, May 2010

2 Outlook Search for 8 Li+  cluster state in 12 B 1) 12 B states: experiment and theory 2) Experimental method: 8 Li+   12 B*  8 Li+   Inverse Kinematic Resonant Elastic Scattering on Thick Target  Inverse Kinematic Resonant Elastic Scattering on Thick Target  Problems: superposition of elastic and inelastic scattering  Problems: superposition of elastic and inelastic scattering  Time measurement  Time measurement 3) The Set-up at LNS: 8 Li beam from EXCYT, CT2000 chamber filled with 4 He gas 4) Preliminary results 5) Conclusions
