- Inelastic excitation and neutron transfer in the 13-13C scattering with the molecular particle-core model (1987)
- The molecular particle-core model is applied to the scattering of 13C on 13C. The model divides the 13C+ 13C system into two 12C cores and two valence neutrons. The valence neutrons are described with molecular eigenfunctions of the symmetric two-center shell model. Coupled channel calculations are carried out for the inelastic single and mutual excitation of the first (1/2+ state of 13C and the neutron transfer to the 12C+14C system. The results reproduce the experimental data. The analysis of the S matrix shows that the gross structure of the transfer excitation function is related to resonances in the relative motion of the elastic and transfer channels.
- Signatures of molecular single-particle states by level crossings in heavy ion collisions (1980)
- In heavy ion collisions, the molecular single-particle motion may cause specific structures in the energy dependence of the cross sections which arise by the promotion of nucleons at level crossings according to the Landau-Zener excitation mechanism. In order to examine this effect in asymmetric heavy ion collisions, we have calculated level diagrams of the two-center shell model for the target projectile combinations 13C + 16O and 12C + 17O and analyzed with respect to inelastic excitation and neutron transfer. We select certain reactions as possible candidates for showing enhanced cross sections for nucleon excitation and transfer due to real and avoided level crossings near the Fermi level.
