  2. 2. Investigations of Reaction Cross Sections for Protons and 3He

    Author : Mattias Lantz; Anders Ingemarsson; Livius Trache; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nuclear physics; reaction cross section; protons; 3He; experimental method; transmission method; optical model; parametrization; matter distributions; Kärnfysik; Nuclear physics; Kärnfysik;

    Abstract : The reaction cross section gives the probability that a particle will undergo a nonelastic process when passing through a nuclear medium. Therefore reaction cross section data are of importance both for theoretical studies and for applications in such diverse fields as medicine, biology, astrophysics and accelerator-driven transmutation of nuclear waste.
