  1. Physics


In this paper, first, the potential and electric fields of a uniform spheroid charge distribution have been investigated. Then, these potential and electric fields fluctuations have been assigned to the permanently deformed nuclei. The elastic Coulomb scattering has been dynamically studied in a numerical route by solving the two-body motion’s differential equation of target nucleus–alpha particle interaction. The anisotropy of specific deformed parameters relating to the prolate nucleus 176Hf (hafnium) has been investigated. The relevance of the scattered particles’ frequency on two axial and orientational scattering angles Θ and φ has been calculated. Dependence of the impact parameter on both scattering angles Θ and φ was another result of the calculations. In order to observe the anisotropy, a practical implementation method of the deformed nuclei’s scattering has been suggested.
