Near-Far Description of Elastic and Breakup Reactions of Halo Nuclei, M. S.  Hussein, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil − The angular distributions for elastic scattering and breakup of halo nuclei are analysed using a near-side/far-side decomposition within the framework of the dynamical eikonal approximation.  This analysis is performed for 11Be impinging on Pb at 69MeV/nucleon.  These distributions exhibit very similar features. In particular they are both near-side dominated, as expected from Coulomb-dominated reactions.  The general shape of these distributions is sensitive mostly to the projectile-target interactions, but is also affected by the extension of the halo. This suggests the elastic scattering not to be affected by a loss of flux towards the breakup channel.
