Abstract: A novel experimental analysis method has been developed, making use of the continuous wavelet transform and machine learning to rapidly identify α-clustering in nuclei in regions of high nuclear state density. This technique was applied to resonant scattering measurements of the 4He(40,44,48Ca,α) resonant reactions, allowing the α-cluster structure of 44,48,52Ti to be investigated. Fragmented α-clustering was identified in 44Ti and 52Ti, while the results for 48Ti were less conclusive, but suggest no such clustering.
