Modeling of the proton-proton reaction in the electron gas

In the suggested model the total interaction of two protons is assumed to be the sum of the short-range nuclear Reid potential and the long-range Thomas–Fermi potential caused by the Coulomb interactions of electrons on one оf the protons. As it is shown, in this model the cross-sectionof the proton-proton reaction with generation of the deuteron increases as inverse power of the proton collision energy in its zero limit.

Keywords: Reid and Thomas–Fermi potentials, proton-proton reaction.
