Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Refinement of the neutron-alpha and proton-alpha fish-bone potential
by Smith, Eric S., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 52; 1523064
Abstract (Summary)

The non-local fish-bone potential simulates the Pauli-exclusion principle for composite particle interactions. This model is used to calculate the phase shifts of the neutron-alpha and proton-alpha systems. We propose a local double Gaussian potential with a new parameterization by fitting to experimental results. These parameters are universal to both nucleon-alpha systems and include all partial waves, which is an improvement over previous work in the field.
