Abstract

We employ a collective vibration coupled-channel model to describe the nucleon-O16 cluster systems, obtaining low-excitation spectra for O17 and F17. Bound and resonance states of the compound systems have been deduced, showing good agreement with experimental spectra. Low-energy scattering cross sections of neutrons and protons from O16 also have been calculated and the results compare well with available experimental data.
