Jakubassa-Amundsen, D. H. (2018): Elastic scattering of spin-polarized electrons and positrons from Na-23 nuclei. In: Nuclear Physics A, Vol. 975: pp. 107-121

Differential cross sections and polarization correlations for the scattering of relativistic spin-polarized leptons from unpolarized ground-state sodium nuclei are calculated within the distorted-wave Born approximation (DWBA). Various nuclear ground-state charge distributions are probed. Besides potential scattering, also electric C2 and magnetic M1 and M3 transitions are taken into account. It is shown that even for a light nucleus such as Na-23 there are considerable electron-positron differences at high collision energies and large scattering angles. In particular, the symmetry of the Sherman function with respect to a global sign change, as predicted by the second-order Born approximation when replacing electrons by positrons, is broken whenever the diffraction structures come into play beyond 100 MeV.
