Abstract : A search for resonances in the S36 (p, gamma-ray) Cl37 reaction was conducted using protons with energies in the 790-keV to 1820-keV range. Approximately 80 previously-unreported resonances were found in the energy region studied. The observed widths appear to be due to target thickness and instrumental effects. The intrinsic strengths, obtained by normalizing the relative strength of each S36 resonance to that of the 1214-keV resonance in the S34 (p, gamma-ray) Cl35 reaction, ranged from 0.02 eV to 1.16 eV. Preliminary analysis of data obtained from gamma-ray spectra has shown evidence for possible new low-lying levels in Cl37 at 4.3 and 5.4 MeV. (Author)
