Microscopic Optical Potentials for Helium-6 Scattering off Protons

  • Ch. Elster
  • A. Orazbayev
  • S. P. Weppner


The differential cross section and the analyzing power are calculated for elastic scattering of 6He from a proton target using a microscopic folding optical potential, in which the 6He nucleus is described in terms of a 4He-core with two additional neutrons in the valence p-shell. In contrast to previous work of that nature, all contributions from the interaction of the valence neutrons with the target protons are taken into account.
