Abstract

The energy dependence of nucleus-nucleus total cross sections (σNNT) has been investigated for p, d, 3He, α, and 12C on 12C. The σT data exhibit an even more pronounced drop at medium energies than seen in the nucleus-nucleus σR data. Microscopic calculations based on the optical limit of the Glauber theory provide a good description of the available σT data.
