Recent measurements of low-energy (quasi)elastic-scattering angular distribution of halo nuclei have shown a strong suppression of the Coulomb-nuclear (CN) interference peak, for instance, for 28.7 MeV 11Be beam incident on a 64Zn target. Examining the components of the elastic-scattering differential cross section, this seems to be caused by both a strong damping of the magnitude and a dramatic change of the phase of the CN interference term due to continuum couplings.
