The l2C(l60,γ)28Si radiative capture reaction has been studied at energies close to the Coulomb barrier at Triumf (Vancouver) using the Dragon spectrometer and its associated BGO array. It has been observed that the γ decay flux proceeds mainly via states around 10-11 MeV and via the direct feeding of the 28Si 3- 1 (6879 keV) and 4+2 (6888 keV) deformed states. A discussion is presented about this selective feeding as well as perspectives for the use of novel detection systems for the study of light heavy-ion radiative capture reactions.
