For deuteron scattering from 58Ni at laboratory energies of 56, 79, and 120 MeV, we study the dynamic polarization potentials (DPPs) induced by S-wave and D-wave breakup (BU), separately and together, in order to gain insight into the nature of the DPP as well as a counterintuitive property: the existence of L values for which the BU coupling increases |SL|, a ‘wrong-way’ effect. The effect is associated with the existence of emissive regions in the imaginary DPP, suggesting a connection with the nonlocal nature of the DPP. The same relationship was previously found for 6Li scattering, indicating a generic effect bearing on the dynamics of nuclear reactions.
