Title: Comparative analysis of proton and pion scattering on the isotopes {sup 6,8}He within Glauber theory

Abstract

The differential cross sections for p{sup 6,8}He and p{sup 6,8}He scattering at the RIKEN andGSI energies (0.073 and 0.7 GeV per nucleon) were calculated on the basis of Glauber theory. Pion and proton interaction with a nucleus is determined by the multiple-scattering series (Glauber operator), so that various collision multiplicities and their contributions to the summed cross section can be taken into account. The use of the α-n-n wave function for {sup 6}He and the wave function on the basis of the large-scale shell model (LSSM) for {sup 8}He makes it possible to calculate analytically scattering matrix elements.

  • Differential cross sections for elastic p{sup 6,8}He and p{sup 8,9}Li scattering at energies between 60 and 70 MeV per nucleon and at the energy of 700 MeV per nucleon were calculated. The calculations in question were performed with the wave functions found on the basis of the α–n–n (for {sup 6}He), α–t–n (for {sup 8}Li), and α–t–2n (for {sup 9}Li) three-body models and with the density from the large-scale shell model for the {sup 8}He nucleus. The respective matrix elements were derived either upon taking fully into account the multiple-scattering operator or in the optical-limit approximation. A comparison of themore » results of the precise and approximate calculations made it possible to estimate reliably the contribution of higher multiplicity collisions to the differential cross sections.« less
  • Elastic pion scattering was examined in the 3,3 resonance region using Glauber theory and including nucleon spin and isospin degrees of freedom, as well as all s- and p-wave channels for the pi N system. (auth)
  • We show that the experimental results for pion elastic scattering from the calcium isotopes in the ..delta../sub 33/ resonance region can be well represented at small angles in terms of the variables of diffraction theory. The parameters describing the amplitude reflect physics that can be attributed to pion and ..delta../sub 33/ dynamics in a microscopic approach, as well as to details of the neutron and proton densities. Using a phenomenological determination of the former, we show that the expermental results require a neutron skin in excess of that obtained from scaling the proton density according to the relative number ofmore » neutrons and protons. The experimental results are consistent with microscopic Hartree-Fock densities, provided that the ratio of isovector to isoscalar optical potential is substantially enhanced over the value obtained from the free pion-nucleon scattering amplitude. The size of this enhancement agrees with pion single-charge-exchange scattering from the calcium isotopes.« less
  • The influence of the detailed behavior of the nuclear densities on the Glauber-theory description of hadron-nucleus scattering is discussed in connection with the problem of determination of elementary hadron-nucleon amplitudes from such analysis. Arguments are given in favor of using the self-consistent FFS nuclear densities for this purpose. 20 refs., 6 figs.
