Abstract

The structure of A=9 nuclei are relevant in nuclear astrophysics. The measurement of the low-lying excited states in Boron-9 nucleus through the <sup>9</sup>Be(<sup>3</sup>He,t)<sup>9</sup>B reaction, with the K600 spectrometer in conjunction with a segmented silicon detector array will be performed at iThemba LABS facility. Of particular interest is the conclusive observation and characterisation of the first 1/2<sup>+</sup> state in Boron-9. By accurately measuring the excitation energy of this state, we aim to obtain the Coulomb Energy Difference (CED) between isobaric analog 1/2<sup>+</sup> states in the Boron-9 and Beryllium-9 mirror pair to address discrepancies that currently exist between theoretical models in describing these nuclei.
