Study of Nuclear Rainbow in the Elastic and Inelastic Scattering of Heavy Ion at High Energies

Abstract

The aim of this proposal is to study and analysis the elastic and inelastic scattering angular distribution data of 16O by different heavy ion (HI) nuclei at high energies in terms of optical model scattering theory. The microscopic real parts of the complex nuclear optical potential will obtain by using different versions of effective interactions: the squared phenomenological Wood-Saxon (WS2), the original M3Y NN (Michigan 3 Yakawa) realistic interaction and the effective α-α cluster interaction. Then, to study the effect of coupling the inelastic channels to the elastic one.

An Investigation of α–Nucleus Elastic Scattering

Abstract

The α elastic scattering from various targets over a wide range of energy (120–400 MeV) has been analyzed in the framework of the double-folding (DF) optical model potential. The real DF optical potentials are generated based upon the M3Y and JLM effective nucleon–nucleon interactions.

Elemental analysis of marble used in Saudi Arabia by different nuclear analytical techniques

Abstract

Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and HPGe detector γ-spectroscopy was used to determine a total of 22 elements qualitatively and quantitatively for the first time from marble rock samples collected from local markets in Saudi Arabia. The elements determined are: (Mg, Ca, V, Na, Mn, As, La, Sm, U, Sc, Cr, Fe, Co, Zn, Sn, Ba, Ce, Eu, Yb, Lu, Hf, Th).

Scattering and Reactions of Some Neutrons Halo Nuclei

Abstract

This work is devoted to study the effective density distributions of the 6He nucleus, which is quite different from those for stable nucleus,4He, and characterized by a halo tail. Then, the optical potentials of this halo nucleus on different targets in the framework of the DF procedure with the M3Y effective interaction is employed to analyze experimental data for the elastic scattering cross sections and angular distributions of this nucleus from different targets.
