Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

The project concerns the nuclear reaction 7Li+176Yb at 50MeV which was carried-out using the AFRODITE and DIAMANT facility of iThemba LABS.

A 7Li nuclide is considered suitable for breakup fusion(Incomplete fusion) reaction because of its well developed cluster structure of an alpha-particle and triton which are weakly bound in this nucleus. One of the fragments may be captured by the target while the other escapes at the beam velocity. Light charged-particles(alphas, tritons and protons) were detected with the DIAMANT(CsI) array in coincidence with gamma-rays detected by the AFRODITE(HPGe) spectrometer.

The project will involve data reduction to produce charged-particle-gated gamma-gamma coincidence matrices which will be analyzed with RADWARE. Insights will be gained into the Incomplete fusion reaction mechanisms initiated by the breakup of the incident 7Li projectile.
