We show examples of neutron capture, photo dissociation and Coulomb dissociation processes, relevant for studying nuclear structure properties of some light nuclei. In the case of the neutron capture, we show how interference effects among the direct and resonance processes can be accounted for. The same interference effect is shown to play an important role in the photo dissociation of [sup 9]Be, for excitation energies just above the neutron emission threshold. Finally, the Coulomb dissociation of radioactive projectiles is shown to provide basic structure information on neutron rich exotic systems. The example of the [sup 19]C halo structure is shown. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
