On the capture of negative pions by6Li

  • G. Alberi
  • L. Taffara


The absorption at rest of negative pions by6Li is investigated. A simple alpha-deuteron model for6Li is assumed and a polediagram approximation is used to calculate the capture rates. The agreement with recent experimental data is satisfactory.

О эахвате отрицательных пионов6Li


Исследуется поглошение в покое отрицательных пионов6Li. Для6Li предполагается простая альфа-дейтронная модель, и испольэуется прибли-жение полюсных диаграмм для вычисления скоростей эахвата. Согласие с недавними зкспериментальными данными удовлетворительное.


In questo lavoro si esamina l’assorbimento a riposo in6Li di pioni negativi. Si ipotizza per il6Li un semplice modello alfa-deutone e si usa un diagramma polare per calcolare le distribuzioni nelle variabili cinematiche. L’accordo con dati sperimentali recenti è soddisfacente.

    A similar interpretation has been given byZupančić (2) for the case of the absorption of positive pions by6Li at 80 MeV.Google Scholar
  9. (*).
    We have assumed in (5) and (6) that the pions are captured mainly ins-orbits. This hypothesis is supported by recent experimental data (8) which gives a 15 percent of 2p-capture for mesic atoms. Furthermore we have used the hydrogenic form for the wave function of pions. As recently pointed out by several authors (9), distortion effects for the mesic-atom wave function would only reduce the absolute value of the capture rates by 50 percent, so that the calculation of the branching ratios of the reactions (1) and (2) would not be appreciably modified by our simplifying approximation.Google Scholar
