Abstract

We present a new method of obtaining time-dependent matrix elements of the electromagnetic pulse produced by a highly relativistic projectile. These matrix elements are used in a coupled-channel calculation to predict the cross sections for population of one- and two-phonon states of the giant dipole resonance. Comparisons are made with the predictions of the long-wavelength and Born approximations.
