The one- and two-neutron transfer reactions (14C, 13C) and (14C, 12C) have been measured on a series of targets. The angular distributions of the differential cross sections were analyzed in the DWBA approach. An excellent description of the one-neutron transfer angular distributions is obtained. The two-neutron transfer cross sections are shown to be underpredicted in DWBA by typically a factor of ten. A calculation which includes the two-step transfer process yields absolute magnitudes consistent with the observed differential transfer cross sections.
