Abstract:

Elastic scattering differential cross sections for a p-4He system are calculated within the framework of optical limit approximation of the Glauber multiple scattering model. Three different ranges for proton energy (Elab), 19<Elab<50 MeV, 100≤Elab ≤1730 MeV, and 45≤Elab≤393 GeV are considered. It is shown that the Pauli blocking fails to describe the data up to the proton energy, Elab<100 MeV. For higher proton energies, a qualitative agreement is obtained. The observed elastic scattering differential cross section is nicely reproduced in the whole range of scattering angles in the center of mass system up to Hc:m:<200° for 19 <Elab?≤100 MeV when the effect of both the nucleon–nucleon (NN) phase variation parameter cNN and higher-order momentum transfer components (λn; n = 1 and 2) of (NN) elastic scattering amplitude is included. In the range of 200≤Elab ≤1730 MeV, introducing kn plays a significant role in describing the data up to the momentum transfer, q2 ≤1.2 (GeV/c)2. Moreover, it is found that considering only the effect of phase variation parameter, γNN, improved the agreement in the region of minima for elastic scattering differential cross section for 45≤Elab ≤393 GeV. The values of γNN and λn as a function of incident proton energies are presented.
