ABSTRACT The charge-exchange reaction p(6He, 6Li)n is studied in reverse kinematics with a secondary 6He beam at 41.6 MeV/nucleon. The transition connecting the ground state of 6He to its isobaric analog state in 6Li has been measured and analyzed in the context of a microscopic calculation. The angular distribution is shown to be sensitive to the nuclear interaction potential and to the radii of the density distribution of 6He. It is shown that only a coherent microscopic analysis may disentangle the different contributions.

    ABSTRACT: Elastic and inelastic proton scattering has been measured in inverse kinematics on the unstable nucleus 40S. A phenomenological distorted wave Born approximation analysis yields a quadrupole deformation parameter β2=0.35±0.05 for the 21+ state. Consistent phenomenological and microscopic proton scattering analyses have been applied to all even-even sulfur isotopes from A=32 to A=40. The second analysis used microscopic collective model densities and a modified Jeukenne-Lejeune-Mahaux nucleon-nucleon effective interaction. This microscopic analysis suggests the presence of a neutron skin in the heavy sulfur isotopes. The analysis is consistent with normalization values for λv and λw of 0.95 for both the real and imaginary parts of the Jeukenne-Lejeune-Mahaux potential.

    ABSTRACT: Measurements of elastic and inelastic scattering cross sections have been performed for 2.5 and 4.1 MeV neutrons incident on 155,156,157,158,160Gd. Angular distributions have been measured at both energies for the 0+, 2+, and 4+ members of the ground-state (gs) band of the even-even isotopes and for the 3/2-, 5/2-, and 7/2- levels of the gs band of the even-odd isotopes. Angular distributions for inelastic scattering from the 9/2- level of the gs band of 155Gd and 157Gd have also been measured at 4.1 MeV. These results together with previously measured s- and p-wave strength functions, potential scattering radii, and elemental total cross sections have been combined in an analysis based on coupled-channel semimicroscopic optical model potential (OMP) and statistical model calculations. The deformed OMP, an extension of our earlier work [E. Bauge, J.P. Delaroche, and M. Girod, Phys. Rev. C 48, 1118 (1998)], is built using a complex density-dependent effective interaction and deformed matter densities deduced from unconstrained, axially symmetric Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov (HFB) calculations based on the Gogny force. The HFB calculations which describe quite nicely a wealth of results from electron scattering and Coulomb excitations measurements, lead to semimicroscopic OMP predictions in good agreement with the neutron scattering and reaction measurements. A phenomenological OMP analysis is also performed to compare the global properties of both potentials.
