Abstract

The intranuclear cascade model is extended to cluster-induced (deuteron and alpha particle) nuclear reactions involving inelastic scattering and breakup reactions. The proposed model explains the projectile breakup process by describing the projectile cluster as a superposition of several states. The incident cluster and the produced cluster are assumed to be collections of independent particles and may undergo nuclear interaction through nucleon–nucleon interaction with the target nucleus. Trajectory deflections for the projectile and ejecta are incorporated in the model to account for angular distributions. Calculations with the proposed model followed by the generalized evaporation model are performed for validation by comparing with experimental double-differential cross-section spectra produced by bombarding an 27Al target separately with 80-MeV and 99.6-MeV deuterons and 140-MeV alpha particles. The calculation results show good agreement with experimental spectra.
