Abstract

A complete kinematics measurement was performed using the 6Li(3He,t) charge exchange reaction to populate 6Be at Elab = 50 MeV. Decay mode of the ground and first excited states were studied through the analysis of the energy and angular distributions of the break-up particles in the 6Be center of mass frame. Two-body decay is observed above the first excited state but not firmly assigned to a 6Be resonant state. Experimental challenges regarding the identification of true 6Be events in the excitation energy region 5 <Ex <20 MeV are discussed.
