Conference Paper

Cross sections and analyzing powers forthe reaction 12C(p,pa) 8Be at an incident energy of 100 MeV, measured over a range of quasifree scattering angle pairs, are compared with elastic scattering of protons from 4He. Remarkable agreement between angidar distributions of the two sets of data, presented as a function of the scattering angle in the two-body centre-of mass, is found. Thus the a-cluster reacts to the projectile just Uke a free particle. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
