      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Elastic scattering cross-sections of lead, tantalum and molybdenum were determined with the help of a Ge (Li) detector for 1.17 and 1.33 MeV rays between 30° and 115°. Theoretical evaluations of the cross-sections are based on a coherent addition of the well-known nuclear Thomson scattering amplitudes, the Rayleigh amplitudes calculated by Kissel and Pratt and the Delbrück amplitudes given by Papatzacos and Mork. The fairly good agreement between experiment and theory reveals the importance of the real Delbrück amplitudes. However, the experimental results in the 30–60° range tend to lie slightly but systematically below the calculated cross-sections.

    • Effective operators and the truncation of shell model configuration space

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      An alternative derivation of the projection method for constructing effective operators in the truncated shell model space is presented. The results of explicit numerical calculations in three different nuclear regions are discussed. Non-hermiticity of the effective Hamiltonian and various hermitisation procedures are investigated in detail.

    • Elastic scattering of electrons by benzene

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Relative differential cross-sections for the elastic scattering of electrons from benzene have been measured at incident energies 300, 500, 700 and 900eV and for scattering angles between 30° and 120°. The results are discussed and compared with the independent atom model (IAM) calculations. Two different sets of scattering amplitudes for the constituent atoms of benzene were used in these calculations, one obtained from first Born approximation and the other from partial wave analysis of the Dirac equation. Only the static interaction was taken into account in the calculations. The higher the incident energy, the better is the observed agreement between experiment and theory. This indicates that at higher energies, absorption, exchange and polarization effects are not significant as compared to the static interaction and that the IAM satisfactorily predicts the interference of scattering from the individual atoms of C6H6.

    • Elastic scattering of 81 keVγ rays by aluminium, nickel, tantalum, gold and lead

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A recently reported study [Phys. Rev.A49, 3664 (1994)] of elastic scattering of 81 keVγ rays in the angular range from 60° to 133° has been extended to smaller and larger angles. Previously reportedS matrix calculations of atomic Rayleigh scattering have been shown to require a subtraction of contributions from spurious resonances. Most of the experimental data are in agreement with the calculations. Calculations (MF + ASF) based on a combination of relativistic modified form factors (MF’s) and angle independent anomalous scattering factors (ASF’s) are found to be inadequate for an explanation of experimental cross-sections in the case of highZ elements at angles larger than about 120°.
