Hi, I'm currently carrying out a computing project on Resonant Scattering and when I have identified a resonant state, I need to examine whether it has a "particular signature". However, I'm not really sure what this means...
The differential cross section for a specific scattering angle is:
So, plotting differential cross section as a function of scattering angle, i get graphs which look like:
(e.g. for a neutron scattering from a 238U nucleus)
However, I'm not really sure what information this shows other than the fact that the graph is symmetrical about .
Any help would be appreciated,
Who do you think it is...
