The Effective Nucleon-Nucleon Interaction Deduced from Nuclear Spectra

  • John P. Schiffer


The subject of this paper is the study of the effective interaction between nucleons as it exhibits itself in the spectra of some of the simplest nuclei. These are nuclei differing from closed shells by only two nucleons. In Fig. 1 we see schematically how the energy level schemes of such nuclei, when combined with the energy levels of adjacent single-particle nuclei, yield the matrix elements of the residual interaction between two nucleons.1
