Measurement of the entry-spin distribution imparted to the high excitation continuum region of gadolinium nuclei via ($$p$$,$$d$$) and ($$p$$,$$t$$) reactions

The surrogate reaction technique has been employed to $$(n,gamma)$$ cross sections in the actinide region to a precision of 20%, but in the rare earth region a factor of 2-3 discrepancy exists between the directly measured $$(n,gamma)$$ and extracted surrogate cross sections. A possible origin of this discrepancy lies in differences between the initial spin/parity population distribution. To investigate this, the angular momentum transfer of the surrogate reaction in Gd nuclei has been measured.
