- Ion-ion potentials and the compressibility of nuclear matter (1968)
- With a schematic model for the nuclear matter we give a unified treatment of the real and imaginary parts of the elastic O16-O16 scattering potential. The model connects the parameters of the potential with the density and binding properties of the O16-O16 system and reproduces the structure of the excitation function quite well. It is shown that the nuclear compressibility can be obtained from the scattering data, and in the case of the S32 compound system there results an effective compressibility (finite quenching of the nuclei) of about 200 MeV.
