The elastic cross section is little changed by the transfer, except that the effective elastic cross section for hydrogen vanishes.
After the transfer from the elastic cross section to the inelastic cross section, the inelastic part is much smoother.
The study was based on the consideration that the elements that present important elastic cross section at the energies around 1 MeV could be utilized to achieve the desired result.
It is worth noting that the depression of the neutron flux corresponds to the resonances of the capture and elastic cross sections. Figure 20 shows the results for varying screen thickness.
Therefore, relying on RCMT, where quarks carry one monopole unit, the [pi] - [pi] elastic cross section is analogous to the elastic cross section of colliding charges.
In particular, an explanation is provided for the relation between the pre-LHC pp elastic cross section data and the existence of closed shells of quarks at the baryonic core.
