Effective Nucleus-Nucleus Potential with Regard for the Con-tribution of the Kinetic Energy of Nucleons, and the Cross-Sections of Elastic Scattering and Subbarrier Fusion

Section: Nuclei and Nuclear Reactions
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian

Abstract: The microscopic double folding approach to the calculation of the nucleus-nucleus interaction has been discussed in detail. The nucleus-nucleus interaction potentials for the 16O + 208Pb system with and without the contribution of the kinetic energy of nucleons in the nuclei are constructed, and the cross-sections of elastic scattering and subbarrier fusion are calculated. The experimental values of those cross-sections are shown to be described well, if the contribution of nucleons’ kinetic energy is taken into account.

Key words: nucleus, interaction potential, nucleon distribution density, fusion cross-section, kinetic energy, elastic scattering
