Canto and Hussein suggested that for some specifics energies the Mott oscillations, which occur in the angular distributions for elastic scattering, would be damped. This damping is called TI (Transverse Isotropy). In the present project we are proposing to experimentally investigate the sensitivity of the occurrence of these TIs in relation to the nuclear potential. We are proposing to perform angular distributions measurements for the elastic scattering of the 6Li+6Li system (spin 1) for energies ELAB = 9 to 20 MeV. These measurements will be performed at the Tandar laboratory in Argentina, Buenos Aires, using the 8 detectors system already available in this laboratory. The combination of the available 6Li beam energy, the detector system, and the experience of the local group for these types of measurements, makes the Tandar laboratory, Argentina, ideal for these measurements. The student will participate in the assembly, measurement and initial analysis of the data.
