Influence of Atomic Effects on Nuclear Reaction Energies

Conference paper


The determination of nuclear reaction energies constitutes, besides mass spectroscopy, an important and powerful method for obtaining highly accurate values of the mass and hence the binding energy of a nuclear species. This method offers not only an independent check of the mass value of a stable or unstable nucleus with rather long life time but it is the only method by which one can determine the binding energy of highly unstable nuclei with lifetimes of a few nuclear periods. Since such experiments until now were never performed with all the reaction partners beeing bare nuclei and since present day accuracy is in many instances well below 1 keV attention has to be given to the unavoidable interaction of the electronic neighbourhood of the interacting nuclei.
