Dispersion relation approach to the coulomb correction term of the proton-nucleus optical model potential


Journal Article

It is shown that the dispersion relation which connects the real and imaginary central parts of the proton-nucleus optical model potential gives rise to a real Coulomb correction term ΔVc, which consists of energy dependent surface and volume components. This feature is illustrated for proton scattering from 40Ca at energies below 40 MeV, where the surface component of ΔVc exhibits large variations with incident energy. Our findings are compared to a recent experimental determination of ΔVc. © 1988.
