The quantum screening effects on the ion-ion collisions are investigated in strongly coupled semiclassical hydrogen plasmas. The method of stationary phase and effective interaction potential containing the quantum mechanical effect are employed to obtain the scattering phase shift and scattering cross section as functions of the impact parameter, collision energy, de Broglie wavelength, and Debye length. The result shows that the scattering phase and cross section decrease with increasing de Broglie wavelength. It is also shown that the scattering cross section increases with an increase of the Debye length. Hence, it is found that the quantum effect suppresses the scattering cross section. In addition, the quantum effect on the scattering cross section is found to be more important in small Debye length domains.

    The scattering problem of the $uudd\bar{s}$ system, in the standard non-relativistic quark model of Isgur-Karl, is solved for the first time, by treating the large five-body model space, including the NK scattering channel, accurately with the Gaussian expansion method and the Kohn-type...

    The 16O nucleus is modelled as a system of four α-particles. It is shown that a Hamiltonian that includes established two- and three-body forces reproducing the α-α phase shifts, the 8Be resonance, and the first and second 0+ states of 12C overbinds the 16O nucleus. To rectify this a...

    Experimental data on neutron-proton scattering in the energy range between 0 and 150 keV are analyzed by using various sets of effective-range parameters.
