Abstract

The calculations of the elastic scattering properties of ultra-cold francium isotopes are reported in detail. A parametric model potential for the triplet molecular states of the Fr2 is represented, and the scattering lengths at and the effective range re are calculated using WKB and Numerov methods for Fr-Fr in the triplet state. The convergence of these scattering properties depending on a K0 parameter and core radius is also investigated using two methods: Quantum Defect Theory and analytical formula of Symskoviski. © 2005 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
