Elastic {sup 16}O{sup 16}O scattering at E({sup 16}O) = 350 MeV and new method for a modelindependent determination of the scattering matrix
Abstract
A new approach that can be used to extract the scattering matrix S(l) as a complexvalued function of the orbital angular momentum l directly from experimental data on elastic nucleusnucleus scattering at intermediate energies without resort to additional model assumptions is developed on the basis of the evolutionary algorithm. Owing to the fact that the behavior of the derivatives of S(l) is automatically monitored within this approach, the scattering matrix obtained for {sup 16}O{sup 16}O interaction at an energy of 350 MeV is determined by its absolute value and the nuclear phase shift, which are smooth monotonic functions of the orbital angular momentum. Moreover, the result involves no distortions, the form of the quantum deflection function being typical of the nuclearrainbow pattern. It is shown that the ultimate form of S(l) is independent of input representations of the scattering matrix, which were usually taken on the basis of various phenomenological models.
