The New Giant Resonances — An Experimental Review

  • Fred E. Bertrand
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 45)


An interesting and important development in nuclear physics during the past 7 years has been the experimental observation of non-dipole giant resonances, the so called “new” giant resonances. Unlike the giant dipole resonance (GDR) which has been established mainly through the photo-nuclear reaction, the new giant resonances were first observed by and have been studied almost exclusively through inelastic scattering of medium-energy hadrons and electrons. (Reference 1 provides a review of this subject as of early 1976. I will refer to this review and the references therein in order to shorten the present reference list. More recent work will be explicitly referenced here.)
