A new paper shows calculations of the effects of final state interactions on deuteron electro-disintegration using nucleon-nucleon amplitudes derived from George Washington University's SAID analysis and a new parameterization using a Regge model. The two approaches are compared in the region of overlap, with good agreement found between the models. The paper further notes observables, which can provide additional insight due to model sensitivity.
