The Effective Two-Nucleon Interaction from Inelastic Proton Scattering

  • Sam M. Austin


Since inelastic scattering cross-sections depend on a nuclear matrix element containing both the wave functions of the nuclear states involved and the effective interaction Veff between the projectile and the target nucleons,1 it is necessary to have an a priori value for Veff before one can use inelastic scattering as a tool for nuclear spectroscopy. An approach to determining Veff which I will explore in detail in this paper, is entirely empirical in nature. One examines transitions where the wave functions are well known and adjusts the strength of the two-body interaction to fit the observed cross-sections. If the results for a representative sample of cases are consistent one has obtained a workable interaction for spectroscopic studies.
