Parity non-conservation in low energy scattering of nucleons by light nuclei. I. Theoretical framework

Journal Article:

Abstract

The low-energy scattering of nucleons by /sup 2/H, /sup 3/He and /sup 4/He is analyzed for parity nonconserving effects. The asymmetry in the total cross section of longitudinally polarized projectiles is formulated in terms of the optical theorem and a distorted-wave Born approximation. For two nucleons at low energies it is only necessary to consider l = 0 to l = 1 matrix elements of the weak nucleon-nucleon potential. The asymmetries in the scattering from nuclear targets are related to the parameters of an effective weak nucleon-nucleon potential, so that they may be used to help differentiate between various proposed theoretical potentials.
