Differential cross sections and T20 and 20TT analyzing powers have been measured for 70 MeV Li7 breakup into the particle plus triton channel, on a Sn120 target. Measurements were made for both continuum breakup and sequential breakup via the 4.63 MeV state in Li7. The T20 data for the continuum breakup do not agree with a semiclassical Coulomb model, indicating that the breakup at small angles does not proceed solely via a Coulomb force. The data generally show a somewhat better agreement with continuum discretized coupled channels calculations, indicating the importance of the nuclear force and channel coupling in the reaction mechanism.
