Search for non-strange dibaryons

  • Arun K. Jain


Inspite of tremendous interest there has been sporadic searches for dibaryon resonances in the past few decades. The main hurdle one faces in this search is their identification, their signature and practically no guide to their location. With the identification of the pentaquark-θ+ resonance one is encouraged to look for the discovery of strange dibaryons also. However where and how to look for non-strange dibaryons is not clear. The transition from a bipolar to a unipolar non-strange dibaryon may possibly be seen in the (p, 2p) reactions on heavy nuclei. The change of the finite size of thep-p interaction vertex can be identified as a sudden change in the extracted DWIA spectroscopic factor. The DWIA anomalies are to be searched for in the existing (p, 2p) reaction data for the identification of non-strange dibaryons
