Interpretation of the Be^{9}(p, d) Reaction at Energies of 5 to 30 Mev
Abstract
The angular distribution of the Be^{9}(p, d) reaction is substantially constant between 5 and 30 Mev. The Butler theory, used with a finite radius as cutoff on the radial integral, does not give a satisfactory interpretation of this fact, but the "transparentnucleus" Born approximation pickup theory does. For incident energies between 16 and 31 Mev this theory gives a momentum distribution for the pickedup neutron which is consistently defined, and which agrees quantitatively with that obtained from the 95Mev data; at lower energies, 5 to 8 Mev, the theory does not appear to work quite as well. The results of the analysis give support to the general validity of interpreting results of the highenergy pickup process in terms of a momentum distribution and a singleparticle model.
