Abstract

We report results for charmonium-nucleon potential Vcc̄N(r) from lattice QCD, which is calculated from the equal-time Bethe-Salpeter amplitude through the effective Schrödinger equation. Detailed information of the low-energy interaction between the charmonia (ηc and J/ψ) and the nucleon is indispensable for exploring the formation of charmonium bound to nuclei. Our simulations are carried out at a lattice cutoff of 1/a≈2GeV in a spatial volume of (3fm)3 with the non-perturbatively O(a)-improved Wilson fermions for the light quarks and a relativistic heavy quark action for the charm quark. Although our main results are calculated in quenched lattice calculations, we also present preliminary full QCD results by using 2+1 flavor QCD configurations generated by the PACS-CS Collaboration. We have found that the charmonium-nucleon potential is weakly attractive at short distances and exponentially screened at large distances.
