Analysis of (p,2p) Angular Correlation Experiments
Abstract
(p,2p) angular correlations for various pshell nuclei are analyzed in the distortedwave Born approximation with simple shellmodel assumptions for the struck particle. The object is to define the limits on the information that can be obtained about nuclear structure from present experiments and to suggest how experiments should be improved. It is found that a simple shellmodel wave function for the struck particle can be quite well defined by fitting present experimental data but that the choice of opticalmodel parameters is highly ambiguous. The ambiguity extends to the determination of the effective twobody potential and the necessity for configuration mixing. The rms radius of the proton distribution obtained from (p,2p) curve fitting agrees well with that obtained from electron scattering. The primary needs is for better energy and angular resolution.
