Abstract:  In the first part of this seminar we will discuss the results of a recent HELIOS [1] measurement of the (d,p) reaction on 18F, from both the ground (1+ ) and isomeric (5+) states, to the members of the 19F ground-state band [2] in the rotational model. We consider the structure of 18,19F in terms of Nilsson single-particle orbits originating from the sd spherical levels coupled to a deformed core, and calculate the (d,p) spectroscopic strengths to 19F from both the ground and isomeric states following the framework reviewed in [3]. Our results show good agreement with the experiment and the shell model. In the second part, we will revisit Kermans Coriolis coupling paper [4] when one of the Nilsson states is a resonance in the continuum. Some preliminary results will be discussed. [1] A.
