Abstract

Whereas a nonrelativistic distorted wave model fails to quantitatively describe analyzing power data for exclusive proton-induced proton-knockout from the 3s1/2 state in 208Pb at 202 MeV, the corresponding relativistic prediction provides a perfect description, thus suggesting that the Dirac equation is the more appropriate underlying dynamical equation. We check the consistency of this result by comparing predictions for both dynamical models to new high resolution data for 3s1/2 knockout in 208Pb at a higher incident energy of 392 MeV.
