PionNucleus Scattering and the Investigation of Nuclear Spin Dependent Effects.
Abstract
Pion elastic scattering from aligned targets and piongamma angular correlations following inelastic scattering are investigated in order to determine nuclear spin dependent effects with pions as projectiles. A densitymatrix formulation is employed to treat the scattering between different target spin states. Two forms of pion optical potentials are used to represent elastic pionnucleus scattering for incident pion energies between 100 and 200 MeV. A collective model generalization with rotational wave functions is employed for the interaction using the distorted wave Born approximation.
