Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, 2007-2008 (Saed Dababneh).

- Large quadrupole moments nucleus as a collective body (Liquid drop model).
- Interactions between outer nucleons and closed shells cause permanent deformation.
- Single-particle state calculated in a non-spherical potential complicated.
- Spacing between energy levels depends on size of distortion.
- Doubly magic 1st excited state away from GS.
- Near closure single-particle states.
- Further away from closure collective motion of the core excited states.

Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, 2007-2008 (Saed Dababneh).

A net nuclear potential due to filled core shells exists.

Collective model combines both liquid drop model and shell model.

Two major types of collective motion:

Rotations: Rotation of a deformed shape.

Vibrations: Surface oscillations.

Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, 2007-2008 (Saed Dababneh).

- Rotational motion observed for non-spherical nuclei.
- Deformed nuclei are mainly 150 < A < 190 and A > 220.
- Ellipsoid of surface:

Collective model

quadrupole

- Quantization of quadrupole vibration is called a quadrupole phonon.
- A phonon carries two units of angular momentum and even parity (-12).
- This mode is dominant. For most even-even nuclei, a low lying state with Jπ=2+ exists.
- Octupole phonon.

Nuclear Reactions

- First in 1919 by Rutherford:
- 4He + 14N 17O + 1H
- 14N(,p)17O
- Incident particle may: change direction, lose energy, completely be absorbed by the target……
- Target may: transmute, recoil……
- b = Capture reaction.
- If B.E. permits fission (comparable masses).
- Different exit channels a + X Y1 + b1
- Y2 + b2
- Y3 + b3…….

Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, 2007-2008 (Saed Dababneh).

Nuclear Reactions

- Recoil nucleus Y could be unstable or emission.
- One should think about:
- Reaction dynamics and conservation lawsi.e. conditions necessary for the reaction to be energetically possible.
- Reaction mechanism and theories which explain the reaction.
- Reaction cross sectioni.e. rate or probability.

Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, 2007-2008 (Saed Dababneh).

- Conservation Laws
- Charge, Baryon number, total energy, linear momentum, angular momentum, parity, (isospin??) …….
