    The asymmetry observed in (p,n)-reactions and explained first by Robson was very important for the understanding of IAR; see H.A. Weidenmüller and C. Mahaux in “Shell-Model Approach to Nuclear Reactions”, North-Holland Publishing Co., Amsterdam 1969; many resonances display no asymmetries.Google Scholar

    Unitarity relates PCN to S in the following way: pCN = IM ∑a <Sacfl Sac'fl*> = - IM ∑a < Sac> <Sac'* In order that the r.h.s. be large, sin(δcc′) should be large; 6c are the optical model plus resonance mixing phases. Close to the Coulomb barrier 6c is essentially the Coulomb phase so that ℓc≠ℓc′ is a necessary condition for large PCN.Google Scholar
