The Empirical Connection Between (p,n) Cross Sections and Beta Decay Transition Strengths

  • T. N. Taddeucci


A proportionality is assumed to exist between 0° (p,n) cross sections and the corresponding beta decay transition strengths. The validity of this assumption is tested by comparison of measured (p,n) cross sections and analogous beta decay strengths. Distorted waves impulse approximation calculations also provide useful estimates of the accuracy of the proportionality relationship.
