Étude des comportements anharmoniques et non linéaires des vibrations des noyaux atomiques

Abstract : Double Giant Resonances, vibrational states in which a Giant Resonance is excited on top of another Giant Resonance, have been in the last years the object of many theories and studies. Whereas the measured energies and widths of these states agree with a theoretical predictions, the measured excitation cross sections on the other hand are almost always larger than the calculated ones. The standard theoretical approaches are based both on a harmonic approximation for the collective motion on the nucleus and on its linear response to an external field. In this work the influence of anharmonicities and non-linearities in the external field on the excitation of Double Giant Resonances are studied. First, an oscillator model and an extension of the Lipkin-Meshkow-Glick model are used to study the effects of anharmonicities and non-linearities on the excitation probabilities. The results show that these terms can influence the excitation probability of the second excited state in a significant way. Secondly, these exactly soluble schematic models are used to study some of the approximations made in microscopic calculations based on boson expansion methods and also some aspects on the time-dependent mean field approach. Finally, a microscopic calculation of the Coulomb excitation cross sections of Double Giant Resonances is presented for several nuclei. It is found that, for 208 Pb, the inclusion of anharmonicities and non-linearities and the consideration of many states that play a role in the excitation process give a satisfactory agreement between calculated and observed cross sections.
