Perhaps this will help with the discussion.

Is one familiar with nuclear quadrupole moment?

hello

I m new in this forum . I m also study in Nuclear Physics.now I confuse about scattering matrix unitary,could u explain me.I m so weak in numerical technique.

The quadrupole moment measures deformation from purely spherical.Please tell me what is the quadrupole deformation of a nucleus???

An elongated shape (like an American footbal) has a postive quadupole moment.

A squashed shape (like a pancake) has a negaive quadrupole moment.
