Abstract / Description of output

A radioactive beam of N ions was used to bombard a (CH) target in order to populate a narrow resonance at 7.77 MeV in O. A weak two proton decay branch was observed with a width of 125 ± 20 eV which occurs predominantly by a sequential mechanism. A limit for He emission of Γ2 <6 eV is compared with calculations.
