16C (1971AJ02)


(See Energy Level Diagrams for 16C)

GENERAL: See also Table 16.1 [Table of Energy Levels] (in PDF or PS).

See (1960ZE03, 1966LE1H, 1969SO08, 1969SO1E, 1970SU1B; theor.) and (1965DO13, 1967AU1B, 1967CA1J, 1968DO1C, 1969AR13).

Mass of 16C: From the Q-value of the 14C(t, p)16C reaction [Q0 = -3.014 ± 0.016 MeV (1961HI01)] and the (1965MA54) masses for 14C, t and p, the mass excess of 16C is 13.695 ± 0.016 MeV.

See (1968CE1A) and (1960GO1B, 1961BA1C).

1. 16C(β-)16N Qm = 8.010

The half-life of 16C is 0.74 ± 0.03 sec (1961HI01).

2. 14C(t, p)16C Qm = -3.014
Q0 = -3.014 ± 0.016 (1961HI01).

Proton groups have been observed at Et = 12 MeV to the ground state and to an excited state of 16C at Ex = 1.753 ± 0.012 MeV. The corresponding angular distributions show L = 0 for 16C(0) and indicate L = 2 for 16C*(1.75): Jπ are then 0+ and (2+), respectively (1964MI05).
