We have calculated the locations of the Regge poles for an actual interatomic potential by following the semiclassical formulation. For negative energies, this formulation is equivalent to the Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization condition. For positive energies there are three complex turning points; use of linear and parabolic connection formulas yields a semiclassical quantization condition for the poles. The poles are found to lie symmetrically along lines in the first and third quadrants of the angular-momentum plane. The locations of the poles at a given energy and the motion of these poles as the energy changes are presented. Remler has shown that Regge poles provide a convenient way of parametrizing experimental differential cross sections. We discuss the relation between this parametrization and the present results.
