Please tell me what is the quadrupole deformation of a nucleus???
Perhaps this will help with the discussion.
Quadrupole deformation - Moller Chart of Nuclides
Is one familiar with nuclear quadrupole moment?

Download this document - http://personal.ph.surrey.ac.uk/~phs1pr/lecture_notes/nuc_expt_phr03.pdf
and look on page 40 or (43 of 225).
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.
An elongated shape (like an American footbal) has a postive quadupole moment.
A squashed shape (like a pancake) has a negaive quadrupole moment.
