Nuclear Studies Involving Intermediate Energy Projectiles
Recently the nuclear physics community has begun to receive the first dividends on a major investment in the construction of intermediate energy (100 MeV — 1 GeV) accelerators. High precision data from such new accelerators in North America as Bates (MIT), IUCF (Indiana), LAMPF (Los Alamos), and TRIUMF (Vancouver) involving medium energy electron, photon, pion and proton projectiles is currently available for comparison with present theory and may stimulate new insights into the multi-faceted aspects of nuclear structure. Of course the flow of new data involving these probes is just beginning. In addition, high quality kaon-nucleus data is anticipated shortly, for example, from the AGS at Brookhaven. Since each probe has associated with it characteristic limitations and complications it is especially important to study the same nuclear excitations in similar regions of momentum transfer with different probes to obtain maximum benefit from the new accelerators. The purpose of these lectures is to give selected examples of the kinds of new data available and anticipated and to compare theory and experiment (or discuss predictions) for the various probes. We stress the complementarity of the various projectiles in elucidating nuclear structure.
