    Abstract of the talk:


    We use second order time dependent perturbation theory to study the reaction of a deuteron (D) with a heavy nucleus (X). The reaction proceeds by the breakdown of the deuteron into a proton and a neutron, due to the action of the first perturbation. The neutron gets captured by the heavy nucleus with the emission of a free proton. The process leads to emission of two photons, one at each vertex (or perturbation). We compute the reaction rate of a specific process in a condensed medium in which the two photons are emitted in coincidence and show that it is sufficiently large to be observable in a laboratory. No special medium conditions are required. Hence we conclude that nuclear reactions can take place at low energies at observable rates. However a detailed application to experimental results is still lacking. We explain the physical mechanism that makes such low energy reactions possible.



    All interested are welcome to attend.
