Abstract: The longitudinal momentum distribution of Be-7 fragments after fragmentation of B-8 and the one-proton removal cross section (σ(-1p)) in a carbon target were measured at 1440 MeV/u with the fragment separator FRS used as an energy-loss spectrometer. The results show a narrow momentum distribution with a FWHM value of 91 ± 5 MeV/c and a large cross-section, σ(-1p) = 98 ± 6 mb. Both these results support the interpretation of a spatially extended proton orbit forming a halo in the B-8 ground state. The momentum distribution and the: one-proton removal cross section are shown to be reproduced with a three-body wave function for B-8 where the target is treated as a black disc in the breakup process.
