The projectile breakup process for 100 MeV 3He interacting with 165Ho and 166, 167Er nuclei was studied by measuring singles and coincidence spectra of the breakup fragments and following γ-rays. By comparing the data of the 3He-induced reaction with those of the α-induced reaction, the breakup process was found to make a large contribution to the charged-particle spectra of the 3He-induced reaction. Contributions of the elastic breakup, inelastic breakup, and breakup fusion processes were deduced individually from the particle-γ coincidence measurements.
