Investigation Of The 10b(Γ,P) Reaction Using Tagged Photons, L J. De Bever, R S. Hicks, R A. Miskimen, Gerald Alvin Peterson Jul 1998

Investigation Of The 10b(Γ,P) Reaction Using Tagged Photons, L J. De Bever, R S. Hicks, R A. Miskimen, Gerald Alvin Peterson

Gerald Alvin Peterson

The reaction 10B(γ,p) has been studied using tagged photons of mean energies Eγ=57.6 and 72.9 MeV. Angular distributions and derived single-particle momentum distributions for protons leading to the ground state of 9Be and higher excited states are compared to various calculations made using model parameters constrained by 10B(e,e′p)9Be and 9Be(p,p′)9Be measurements. The effects of varying final-state interactions (including channel couplings) and meson exchange currents are considered. A sizable discrepancy between direct-knockout calculations and the experimental results is observed. If meson exchange currents are included in an approximate fashion ...


Measurements Of The Δ(1232) Transition Form Factor And The Ratio Σn/Σp From Inelastic Electron-Proton And Electron-Deuteron Scattering, L M. Stuart, R S. Hicks, R A. Miskimen, Gerald Alvin Peterson, S H. Rokni Jun 1998

Measurements Of The Δ(1232) Transition Form Factor And The Ratio Σn/Σp From Inelastic Electron-Proton And Electron-Deuteron Scattering, L M. Stuart, R S. Hicks, R A. Miskimen, Gerald Alvin Peterson, S H. Rokni

Gerald Alvin Peterson

Measurements of inclusive electron-scattering cross sections using hydrogen and deuterium targets in the region of the Δ(1232) resonance are reported. A global fit to these new data and previous data in the resonance region is also reported for the proton. Transition form factors have been extracted from the proton cross sections for this experiment over the four-momentum transfer squared range 1.64


Radial Dependence Of The Nucleon Effective Mass In 10b, L J. De Bever, R S. Hicks, R A. Miskimen, Gerald Alvin Peterson May 1998

Radial Dependence Of The Nucleon Effective Mass In 10b, L J. De Bever, R S. Hicks, R A. Miskimen, Gerald Alvin Peterson

Gerald Alvin Peterson

The dynamic properties of the atomic nucleus depend strongly on correlations between the nucleons. We present a combined analysis of inelastic electron-scattering data and electron-induced proton knockout measurements in an effort to obtain phenomenological information on nucleon-nucleon correlations. Our results indicate that the ratio of radial wave functions extracted from precise 10B(e,e′) and 10B(e,e′p) measurements evolve from an interior depression for small Em, characteristic of short-range correlations, to a surface-peaked enhancement for larger Em, characteristic of long-range correlations. This observation can be interpreted in terms of the nucleon effective mass.
