Preliminary results indicate that even at the small scale now accessible--and contrary to some theoretical predictions--the deuteron can be adequately described as consisting of two particles loosely bound together.
Our present work is directed toward two ways; first, we have studied the elastic scattering of deuteron with nuclei in the mass region 6 [?

In this theory, the elastic scattering amplitude between deuteron of mass number A and a target nucleus of mass number B and atomic number [Z.

the organization Maglich and co-workers formed to do these migma experiments, the present experiment used deuterons because they make measuring and following the action easier.
