Abstract

The differential cross sections for the inelastic scattering of 10 MeV, 19.6 MeV, 30.4 MeV, 40 MeV and 49.35 MeV protons to the 2+ state (1.409 MeV) in 54Fe and of 19.6 MeV protons to the 2+ state (0.846 MeV) in 56Fe are analyzed in conjunction with the available data on the asymmetries and spin-flip probability amplitudes. The scattering amplitudes for both one step (valence plus core polarization) and two step (intermediate resonance) processes are evaluated using an antisymmetrized distorted wave approximation. Collective model representations for both the one step (core polarization) and two step (intermediate resonance) processes are used, and included are the effects of deforming the f..
