16C (1986AJ04)

(See Energy Level Diagrams for 16C)

GENERAL: See also (1982AJ01) and Table 16.1 [Table of Energy Levels] (in PDF or PS) here.

Nuclear models: (1982LA26, 1984SA37).

Complex reactions involving 16C: (1982FI10, 1983FR1A, 1983WI1A, 1984HI1A, 1985PO11, 1986CS1A).

Hypernuclei (States observed in the 16O(K-, π+) reaction at EK- = 450 MeV/c are interpreted as due to the recoil-less production of Σ- particles in the p3/2 and p1/2 orbits of the Σ16C hypernucleus (1985BE31).): (1982DO1L, 1982PI02, 1983BA1Y, 1984AS1D, 1985BE31, 1986MI1N, 1986ZO1A).

Other topics: (1984PO11, 1985AN28, 1985BA51, 1985FL1D).

Ground state properties of 16C: (1983ANZQ, 1984FR13, 1985AN28).

1. 16C(β-)16N Qm = 8.012

The half-life of 16C is 0.747 ± 0.008 sec: it decays to 16N*(0.12, 3.35, 4.32) [Jπ = 0-, 1+, 1+]: see Table 16.2 (in PDF or PS). See also (1983SN03) for a discussion of the decay of 16C to 1+ states in 16N and (1985KI06; theor.).

2. 14C(t, p)16C Qm = -3.013

States of 16C observed in this reaction are displayed in Table 16.3 (in PDF or PS) of (1982AJ01) and in Table 16.1 (in PDF or PS) here.
