Pionic correlations and meson-exchange currents in two-particle emission induced by electron scatteringAug 04 2010Two-particle two-hole contributions to electromagnetic response functions are computed in a fully relativistic Fermi gas model. All one-pion exchange diagrams that contribute to the scattering amplitude in perturbation theory are considered, including ... More
Relativistic versus Nonrelativistic Optical Potentials in A(e,e'p)B ReactionsDec 07 1993Apr 27 1995We investigate the role of relativistic and nonrelativistic optical potentials used in the analysis of ($e,e'p$) data. We find that the relativistic calculations produce smaller ($e,e'p$) cross sections even in the case in which both relativistic and ... More
Spectroscopic Factors in $^{40}$Ca and $^{208}$Pb from $(e,e'p)$: Fully Relativistic AnalysisOct 04 1993We present results for spectroscopic factors of the outermost shells in $^{40}$Ca and $^{208}$Pb, which have been derived from the comparison between the available quasielastic ($e,e'p$) data from NIKHEF-K and the corresponding calculated cross-sections ...

Inclusive quasielastic scattering of polarized electrons from polarized nucleiApr 16 1998The inclusive quasielastic response functions that appear in the scattering of polarized electrons from polarized nuclei are computed and analyzed for several closed-shell-minus-one nuclei with special attention paid to 39K. Results are presented using ... More
Analysis of factorization in (e,e'p) reactions: A survey of the relativistic plane wave impulse approximationOct 16 1997The issue of factorization within the context of coincidence quasi-elastic electron scattering is reviewed. Using a relativistic formalism for the entire reaction mechanism and restricting ourselves to the case of plane waves for the outgoing proton, ... More
Probing Deformed Orbitals with \vec{A}(\vec{e}, e' N)B reactionsNov 11 1994We present results for response functions and asymmetries in the nuclear reactions 37\vec{Ar}(\vec{e},e'n)36Ar and 37\vec{K}(\vec{e},e' p)36Ar at quasifree kinematics. We compare PWIA results obtained using deformed HF wave functions with PWIA and DWIA ... More
