Σ- atoms and the ΣN interaction
- 22 Downloads
It is shown that among four models of the Nijmegen baryon-baryon interaction only model F --which leads to a repulsive potential felt by the Σ hyperon inside the nucleus-- is consistent both with the analysis of Σ- atoms and of the (K-,π) reactions. The Nijmegen models are used to determine the strong complex single-particle (s.p.) potential of Σ-, and to calculate the strong-interaction shifts and widths of the lowest observed levels of Σ- atoms. The results obtained with model F are in best agreement with the experimental data.
