Abstract : Nuclear energy levels and nuclear reaction mechanisms were studied. Proton, deuteron, helium-3 and alpha particle reactions on Li6, Li7, and Be9 were studied. A gamma-ray detector was used which features cosmic-ray anticoincidence shielding and anti pile-up circuitry. Cluster effects are described. It was found that the levels in Be8 between 16 and 18 MeV can apparently be described by simple shell model wave functions. Lifetimes of the first excited states of the mirror nuclei Li7 and Be7 were determined by Doppler shift measurements using Li-drifted Germanium detectors.
