The low-lying spectroscopy of 6He was investigated via the 2-neutron transfer reaction p(He8,t) with the 8He beam delivered by the SPIRAL facility at 15.4AMeV. The light charged particles produced by the direct reactions were measured using the MUST2 Si-strip telescope array. Above the known 2 + state, two new resonances were observed: at E *=2.6±0.3MeV (width Γ=1.6±0.4MeV) and at 5.3±0.3MeV with Γ=2±1MeV. Through the analysis of the angular distributions, they correspond to a 2 + state and to...[Show more]
