SRC Model for Nuclear Structure

Authors: Ranjeet Dalal

A new approach for the nuclear structure is suggested which is based upon the idea that the nucleons are not moving independently inside the nuclei, but are forming Short Range Correlated (SRC) quasi-particles. The existence of SRCs inside nuclei has been verified by many experiments [1-3] and is considered to be underlying reason behind the EMC effect [4]. Using few assumptions, a SRC based model for the nuclear structure is proposed. The model is equivalent to the liquid drop model for consideration of the nuclear binding energy and is equivalent to the shell model if the shell structure of SRC quasiparticles is considered. Equivalence of the present model to the cluster model for specific applications is also highlighted. Further, this model provides insights for the symmetric/asymmetric nature of spontaneous fission and Giant Resonances.
