Physical Review C
Microscopic calculations of nuclear reaction cross sections and total reaction probabilities are compared with measurements for the d+Si, 3,4He+Si, and d+Ge systems at energies ranging from 2 to 53 MeV/nucleon. Good agreement is obtained, except for 3He+Si at the very lowest energies, when zero-range nucleon-nucleon forces are assumed and realistic nuclear density distributions are used in the tail regions, where the models are most sensitive. The agreement is less good for finite-range forces. A strong absorption model gives much poorer agreement with the recent 4He+Si measurements than do the microscopic models.
