An Introduction to Halo Nuclei

  • Jim Al-Khalili
Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 651)

Abstract

This lecture will not aim to provide an exhaustive review of the field of halo nuclei, but rather will outline some of the theoretical techniques that have been used and developed, both in structure and reaction studies, over the past decade to understand their properties. A number of review articles have recently appeared in the literature [1-10] which the interested reader can then go to armed with a basic understanding of how the theoretical results were produced.

Keywords

Reaction Cross Section Halo Nucleus Eikonal Approximation Total Reaction Cross Section Valence Neutron 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
