Charge symmetry in ^(13)N and ^(13)C a coupled-channel model


Fox, George (1979) Charge symmetry in ^(13)N and ^(13)C a coupled-channel model. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/KPCM-RE19.


A set of coupled-channel differential equations based on a rotationally distorted optical potential is used to calculate the wave functions required to evaluate the gamma ray transition rate from the first excited state to the ground state in ^(13)C and ^(13)N. The bremsstrahlung differential cross section of low energy protons is also calculated and compared with existing data. The marked similarity between the potentials determined at each resonance level in both nuclei supports the hypothesis of the charge symmetry of nuclear forces by explaining the deviation of the ratios of the experimental E1 transition strengths from unity.
