Abstract

Energy integrated reaction cross-section measurements of around sixty neutron-rich nuclei covering the region of closed shells N = 20 and N = 28 were performed at intermediate energy (30-65 A.MeV) using direct method. In this experiment, silicon detectors were used as active targets. The reduced strong absorption radii, r02, for 19 new nuclei (27F, 27,30Ne, 33Na, 28,34-35Mg, 36-38Al, 38-40Si, 41-42P, 42-44S and 45Cl) are deduced for the first time. An additional 60 radii, also measured in this experiment, are compared to results from literature. A new quadratic parametrization is proposed for the nuclear radius as a function of the isospin in the region of closed shells N = 8 and N = 28. According to this parametrization, the skin effect is well reproduced and anomalous behaviour on the radii are observed in 23N, 29Ne, 33Na, 35Mg, 44S, 45Cl and 45Ar nuclei.
