Title: Clustering Features of 9Be, 14N, 7Be, and 8B Nuclei in Relativistic Fragmentation

Abstract

Recent studies of clustering in light nuclei with an initial energy above 1 A GeV in nuclear track emulsion are overviewed. The results of investigations of the relativistic 9Be nuclei fragmentation in emulsion, which entails the production of He fragments, are presented. It is shown that most precise angular measurements provided by this technique play a crucial role in the restoration of the excitation spectrum of the {alpha} particle system. In peripheral interactions 9Be nuclei are dissociated practically totally through the 0+ and 2+ states of the 8Be nucleus.The results of investigations of the dissociation of a 14N nucleus of momentum 2.86 A GeV/c in emulsion are presented as example of more complicated system. The momentum and correlation characteristics of {alpha} particles for the 14N{yields}3{alpha} + X channel in the laboratory system and the rest systems of 3{alpha} particles were considered in detail. Topology of charged fragments produced in peripheral relativistic dissociation of radioactive 8B, 7Be nuclei in emulsion is studied.

  • Nuclear structure of {sup 7}Be, {sup 8}B and {sup 7,8}Li is studied within the ab initio no-core shell model (NCSM). Starting from the high-precision CD-Bonn 2000 nucleon-nucleon (NN) interaction, wave functions of {sup 7}Be and {sup 8}B bound states are obtained in basis spaces up to 10{h_bar}{Omega} and used to calculate channel cluster form factors (overlap integrals) of the {sup 8}B ground state with {sup 7}Be+p. Due to the use of the harmonic oscillator (HO) basis, the overlap integrals have incorrect asymptotic properties. We fix this problem in two alternative ways. First, by a Woods-Saxon (WS) potential solution fit tomore » the interior of the NCSM overlap integrals. Second, by a direct matching with the Whittaker function. The corrected overlap integrals are then used for the {sup 7}Be(p,{gamma}){sup 8}B S-factor calculation. We study the convergence of the S-factor with respect to the NCSM HO frequency and the model space size. Our S-factor results are in agreement with recent direct measurement data.« less

We study the convergence of the S-factor with respect to the NCSM HO frequency and the model space size. Our S-factor results are in agreement with recent direct measurement data. We also test the spectroscopic factors and the corrected overlap integrals from the NCSM in describing the momentum distributions in knockout reactions with {sup 8}B projectiles. A good agreement with the available experimental data is also found, attesting the overall consistency of the calculations.« less
  • The 'world average' of the astrophysical cross section factor , S17(0), is driven by the Seattle result due to the very small quoted uncertainty, which we however demonstrate it to be an overestimated accuracy. We propose more realistic error bars for the Seattle results based on the published Seattle data. This leads to a an uncertainty of the measured slope of S17 and thus an uncertainty due to extrapolation that can be reasonably estimated to be {sub -3.0}{sup +0.0} eV-b.
  • Two-proton removal in 17Ne at energies from 60 to 710 A MeV in the carbon target is studied in the eikonal approximation of the Glauber model. The excitation of the 15O core fragment is taken into account. The calculated proton removal cross section in 17Ne, the 17Ne and 15O interaction cross sections are compared to the available experimental data.
