Rutherford Centennial Conference on Nuclear Physics, 2011
Quasi elastic cross sections were measured for the first time for both negative and positive missing momenta for the Bi-209(e, e'p)Pb-208 reaction leading to the ground state and hole states of Pb-208. Experimental cross sections obtained between -0.3 GeV/c to 0.3 GeV/c agree with theoretical calculations using RDWIA techniques both in shape and magnitude for the ground state. The data for the ground state production of Pb-208 are consistent with a theoretical model assuming a single proton(1.06 +/- 0.10) in the 1h9/2 orbit in Bi-209.
