Dissecting reaction calculations using halo effective field theory and ab initio input
Abstract
Here, we present a description of the breakup of halo nuclei in peripheral nuclear reactions by coupling a model of the projectile motivated by halo effective field theory with a fully dynamical treatment of the reaction using the dynamical eikonal approximation. Our description of the halo system reproduces its longrange properties, i.e., binding energy and asymptotic normalization coefficients of bound states and phase shifts of continuum states. As an application we consider the breakup of ^{11}Be in collisions on Pb and C targets. Taking the input for our haloEFTinspired description of ^{11}Be from a recent ab initio calculation of that system yields a good description of the Coulombdominated breakup on Pb at energies up to about 2 MeV, with the result essentially independent of the shortdistance part of the halo wave function. However, the nuclear dominated breakup on C is more sensitive to shortrange physics. The role of spectroscopic factors and possible extensions of our approach to include additional shortrange mechanisms are also discussed.
