The one- and two-neutron removal reactions from C17 and C18 as well as the reaction cross section of C18 have been studied using a carbon target at 80A MeV. The longitudinal momentum distributions of C15,16 fragments from C17 and C16,17 fragments from C18 were measured by a direct time-of-flight method. The width of C15 fragments from C17 is fairly smaller than that from other C isotopes. The experimental data are discussed within the framework of the Glauber model.
