Abstract

Coulomb dissociation of 8B is an alternative method to measure the low-energy 7B(p,γ)8B cross section. This reaction is of great current interest in the context of solar neutrinos and has been studied recently both in direct proton-capture [1-4] and in Coulomb-dissociation experiments [5-8]. The validity of the latter method has been questioned since the role of E2 multipolarity is considered controversial. The present experiment [8] has studied observables that could clarify the role of a possible E2 contribution.
