Phys. Rev. C 87, 044330 – Published 23 April 2013


A semimicroscopic model (particle-hole dispersive optical model) is formulated to describe the main relaxation modes of high-energy particle-hole-type excitations in medium-heavy mass nuclei. Within this model, Landau damping and the single-particle continuum are considered microscopically, while the spreading effect is treated phenomenologically, employing a statistical assumption. Description of direct nucleon decay of the above-mentioned excitations (including giant resonances) is a unique feature of the proposed model, which in applying to closed-shell nuclei is arranged for practical implementations. The methodical similarity of formulations of the single-quasiparticle and particle-hole optical models is emphasized.

Discontinuation of Brief Reports in Physical Review C
March 17, 2015

Starting July 1, 2015, Physical Review C (PRC) is discontinuing its Brief Reports section. Beginning on April 1, 2015, PRC will consider new submissions to the Brief Reports section as short regular articles.

APS and CERN Sign Open Access Agreement for SCOAP3

APS and CERN, the host organization of SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), have signed an agreement to make the high-energy physics (HEP) articles published in three leading APS journals open access beginning January 1, 2018. This agreement acts to support the publishing of open access content for wider benefit of the HEP community.
