Pion-Nucleus Interactions and Photoproduction

  • F. Tabakin


In the photoproduction process the interaction of the meson with the residual nucleus plays a significant role. The basic process consists of the photon coupling to the electromagnetic currents of the constituent nucleons, the nucleons are thereby moved to act as meson radiators. The distribution of the nucleons in the nucleus and the associated currents are ascertained by using electron scattering and nuclear spectra information to provide nuclear wave functions.
