Positron production in collision of heavy nuclei

Abstract.We consider the electromagnetic production of positron in the collision of slow heavy nuclei, with the simultaneously produced electron captured by one of the nuclei. The cross-section of

Electron-positron pair production in slow collisions of heavy nuclei beyond the monopole approximation

Electron-positron pair production in low-energy collisions of heavy nuclei is considered beyond the monopole approximation. The calculation method is based on the numerical solving of the

Coulomb problem for a Z > Z cr

A closed-form equation is derived for the critical nucleus charge at which a discrete level with the Dirac quantum number touches the lower continuum of the Dirac equation solutions. For the Coulomb

Electromagnetic production of positrons and electrons in collisions of heavy nuclei

We consider the electromagnetic production of positrons and electrons in collisions of slow heavy nuclei. This process is dominated by emission of positrons, with the electrons captured by nucleus.
