Abstract

The rotational band of alpha cluster states in 32S has been studied experimentally by elastic scattering of 12.4 to 17.1 MeV alpha particles from natural silicon targets and compared to bands in 28Si, 36Ar and 44Ti. Fourier analysis of the excitation function indicates the existence of a vibrational mode in addition to the rotational. The rotation implies a joint rotation of a core circled by an alpha particle. Parameters characterizing the mass and thickness of the jointly rotating mass are extracted from the experimental results.
