Distributions of parallel and transverse momenta for Be fragments formed in the breakup of B have been measured at . The distributions are narrow ( and FWHM for Be and Au targets, respectively), comparable to those of neutron halo nuclei. Reaction mechanisms influence the Be momentum distributions, so they do not directly reflect the valence proton momentum wave function. We present reaction models that reproduce the distributions.
