Abstract

The nucleon momentum distributions (NMD) and elastic electron scattering form factors of the ground state for some 1f-2p-shell nuclei, such as 58Ni, 60Ni, 62Ni, and 64Ni
isotopes have been calculated in the framework of the coherent fluctuation model (CFM) and expressed in terms of the weight function lf(x)l. The weight function (fluctuation function) has been related to the nucleon density distribution (NDD) of the nuclei and determined from the theory and experiment. The NDD is derived from a simple method based on the use of the single particle wave functions of the harmonic oscillator potential and the occupation numbers of the states. The feature of the long-tail behavior at high momentum region of the NMD’s has been obtained by both the theoretical and experimental weight functions. The calculated elastic electron scattering form factors for considered isotopes are in reasonable agreement with those of experimental data throughout all values of momentum transfer q.
