Heavy ion folding potentials

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 89)


The calculation and application of folding-model potentials for heavy-ion scattering are discussed for bombarding energies of the order of 10 MeV/nucleon. Both single- and double-folding methods are considered with an emphasis on using realistic internucleon interactions based on G-matrices in a double-folding model. The desirability of a consistent folding-model description of both light-ion and heavy-ion scattering is stressed and progress in this direction and some residual problems are discussed. An empirical assessment of the G-matrix folding model is made by applying the model to a number of cases of heavy-ion elastic and inelastic scattering.
