Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The charge changing cross sections are investigated in the framework of the Glauber model by rearranging the transparency function. It is expressed in two parts - the projectile proton contribution (the dominating part) and the rest. The charge changing and the total neutron removal cross sections are investigated for a number of nuclei spanning different mass regions. The point proton and neutron densities required for the explicit calculations, for these nuclei (as projectiles, incident on various targets) are obtained by solving the relativistic mean field/relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov equations. The proposed model for the charge changing cross section gives an excellent account of the experiment.
