Coulomb Interaction and Reactions between Complex Nuclei

  • B. N. Kalinkin


Heavy-ion accelerators can give strong beams of nearly all nuclides and will soon provide reactions between heavy nuclei. Theory will encounter new problems in interpreting these reactions. For instance, there have already been discussions of the possible effects of strong Coulomb interaction on the collision dynamics and on the detailed course of various processes. This review deals with this topic, especially studies of nuclear shape as affected by the Coulomb field, and it is shown that dynamic deformation can lead not only to substantial changes in well-known processes (elastic and inelastic scattering, transfer reactions, formation and decay of compound nuclei) but also to essentially new processes such as Coulomb fission.
