Physics of Elementary Particles and Atomic Nuclei

[ISSN 0367-2026] (Print), [ISSN 1814-7445] (Online)

Founded in 1970, the review journal Physics of Elementary Particles and Atomic Nuclei, brief name Particles & Nuclei, is published by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna. This is the most influential physical review journal in Russia.
Published by leading physicists from Member States of JINR, as well as scientists from all over the world, review articles in this eminent journal examine elementary particle physics, problems of vacuum in quantum field theory, condensed matter problems, symmetries in physics, string theories and gravity, nuclear physics, automatic processing of experimental data, accelerators and related instrumentation, accelerator-based transmutation studies, ecological implications of present nuclear and conventional energy sources, energy amplifiers based on accelerators.
The journal provides review articles in Russian and in English. Note: all volumes are translated into English and published by the Nauka/Interperiodika International Academic Publishing House. The translation journal appears under the name Physics of Particles and Nuclei.
Annualy 6 issues are published joined in one volume. In 2000-2004, the journal had a supplementary issue in addition to the six regular issues.
The Editors invite you to contribute review articles and guarantee rapid publication of your papers.

Quantum Diffusion Description of Large-Amplitude Collective Nuclear Motion
(rus, 3.1 Mb)

Within the microscopic quantum diffusion approach, the method to calculate the probability of passing through the parabolic barrier and the quasistationary thermal decay rate from a metastable state is developed. The method is used both in the limit of linear coupling in the momentum between the collective subsystem and environment and in the more general limit of linear coupling in the momentum and the coordinate. In terms of the considered approach, the capture process of the projectile by the target nucleus is studied at bombarding energies near and below the Coulomb barrier. The analytical expression for partial capture probability which defines the formation cross section of a dinuclear system is derived. The total and partial capture cross sections, mean and mean-square angular momenta of the captured systems, astrophysical S-factors, logarithmic derivatives, and barrier distributions are calculated for various reactions. The effects of entrance channel, isotopic composition, and nuclear deformation of interacting nuclei and neutron transfer between them on capture cross section are studied. %The effects of nuclear deformation and neutron transfer between interacting nuclei, the isotopic dependence of capture cross section, the entrance channel effects on capture process are studied. The calculated results for the reactions with spherical and deformed nuclei are in a good agreement with available experimental data.
