Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The angular distributions of the inelastic scattering of antiprotons for a few collective states of 12C and 18O have been measured. They exhibit a diffractive pattern, typical of strong absorption. Coupled channel analysis of these data has been carried out. The derived multipole moments agree fairly well with those obtained with other probes. Microscopic calculations performed in the framework of the DWIA formalism, using either the Paris or the Dover-Richard NN̄ interaction are in good agreement with the data for the low-lying collective states. The present status of the experimental study of the unnatural parity levels is discussed.
