For volume reflection process in a bent crystal, exact analytic expressions for positively- and negatively-charged particle trajectories are obtained within a model of parabolic continuous potential in each interplanar interval, with the neglect of incoherent multiple scattering. In the limit of the crystal bending radius greatly exceeding the critical value, asymptotic formulas are obtained for the particle mean deflection angle in units of Lindhard's critical angle, and for the final beam… 

Mean volume reflection angle

The mean volume reflection angle of a high-energy charged particle passing through a bent crystal is expressed as an integral involving the effective interplanar potential over a single crystal

Simulations of planar channeling of relativistic nuclei in a bent crystal

The motion of relativistic nuclei through an oriented bent crystal was considered on the basis of a developed computer code. To get the angular distributions of projectiles behind the crystals and to


Volume reflection [1] is a phenomenon when a fast charged particle reflects from a family of curved atomic planes of an oriented bent crystal to side opposite to that of the crystal bending. It is

Angular asymmetry of the nuclear interaction probability of high energy particles in short bent crystals

The rate of inelastic nuclear interactions in a short bent silicon crystal was precisely measured for the first time using a 180 GeV/c positive hadron beam produced in the North Experimental Area of

Interference in spectrum of radiation from doubly scattered charged particle

Existence of different types of interference in the spectrum of radiation emitted by a doubly hard scattered electron is demonstrated. The spectrum develops oscillations in two regions: the hard,
