States with excitation energies above this value can therefore emit single nucleons. The emitted nucleons are primarily neutrons since they are not hindered by the Coulomb threshold. Such a strong interaction process is clearly preferred to γ-emission. The excitation spectrum above the threshold for particle emission is called the continuum, just as in atomic physics. Within this continuum there are also discrete, quasi-bound states. States below this threshold decay only by (relatively slow) γ-emission and are, therefore, very narrow.

The transition matrix element is given by: Mf i = ψf |Hint |ψi = ψf∗ Hint ψi dV . 15) This matrix element is also called the probability amplitude for the transition. Furthermore, the reaction rate will depend upon the number of ﬁnal states available to the reaction. According to the uncertainty principle, each particle occupies a volume h3 = (2π )3 in phase space, the six-dimensional space of momentum and position. Consider a particle scattered into a volume V and into a momentum interval between p and p + dp .

5). 5 Geometric Shapes of Nuclei In this chapter we shall study nuclear sizes and shapes. In principle, this information may be obtained from scattering experiments (e. , scattering of protons or α particles) and when Rutherford discovered that nuclei have a radial extent of less than 10−14 m, he employed α scattering. In practice, however, there are diﬃculties in extracting detailed information from such experiments. Firstly, these projectiles are themselves extended objects. Therefore, the cross-section reﬂects not only the structure of the target, but also that of the projectile.
