Atomic Effects on Nuclear Reaction Yield Curves
Non-nuclear effects that influence the shape of nuclear reaction yield curves were first studied at Wisconsin in 1959 in an attempt to check the linearity of an electrostatic analyzer when further work was planned on proton-proton scattering. The first effect studied1, 2 is a large asymmetric shift of a thick target resonance yield curve when hydrogen diatomic ions are used for bombardment. Results were explained by taking into account Coulomb repulsion between the two protons of the diatomic ion assuming that the electron is lost immediately when the ion strikes the target.
