Title: Light fragment emission in {sup 86}Kr-{sup 124}Sn collisions at 25 MeV/nucleon

Abstract

Light fragments emitted in {sup 86}Kr-{sup 124}Sn collisions at intermediate energy (E{sub beam}=25 MeV/nucleon) and larger impact parameters (b=7-10 fm) are studied by a multisource ideal gas model. The momentum component, transverse momentum, and azimuthal angle distributions of light fragments with mass numbers A=1-4 are given. Meanwhile, the correlation between the elliptic flow and transverse momentum, as well as the correlation between the fourth momentum anisotropy and transverse momentum for the mentioned light fragments are given, too. The calculated results are compared with the theoretical results of the Isospin-Dependent Quantum Molecular Dynamics model.

  • Light charged particles from the reaction 640 MeV {sup 86}Kr+{sup 63}Cu have been measured in singles and in coincidence with intermediate mass fragments, fissionlike fragments, and other light charged particles. Multiplicities for {sup 1}H and {sup 4}He in association with the evaporation residues, fragments, and intermediate mass fragments have been determined. Composite nuclei, most of which decay to evaporation residues, are the major sources of evaporative light-charged particle emission. Average multiplicities for prescission {sup 1}H and {sup 4}He can be associated with the composite nucleus {ital en} {ital route} to scission; they are relatively large and thus suggest a timemore » scale for fission longer than that for evaporation. The multiplicities for {sup 1}H and {sup 4}He in association with the intermediate mass fragments indicate that these fragments are usually born with a significant quantity of excitation energy. These multiplicities are used to estimate the primary masses and kinetic energies of the intermediate mass fragments.« less
  • Neutron emission associated with deep-inelastic collisions of 496-, 602-, and 675-MeV /sup 86/Kr with /sup 166/Er has been studied as a function of kinetic energy loss, fragment mass, and neutron scattering angles. The major de-excitation process is neutron evaporation from fully accelerated fragments. The excitation energy is shared between the fragments in proportion to their mass, indicating energy equilibration in the intermediate dinuclear composite system for the completely damped as for the quasielastic components. Within limits imposed by the systematic uncertainties, the angular and velocity distributions of the neutrons in the laboratory frame are consistent with isotropic emission of neutronsmore » in the c.m. frame of the fragments. We find no evidence for pre-equilibrium effects. The observed multiplicities and energy spectra of the neutrons are consistent with predictions of statistical-model calculations.« less
  • Neutrons emitted in the deep inelastic collisions of /sup 86/Kr on /sup 166/Er at 11.9 MeV/nucleon, were measured in coincidence with both fragments. The velocity and angular distributions of the neutrons cannot be accounted for by assuming only isotropic evaporation from the fully accelerated fragments. The experimental analysis shows the presence of a preequilibrium component of neutrons emitted mainly on the side of the light fragments in quasi-elastic events, and on the side of the heavy fragments in strongly damped events. The qualitative features of the data are reproduced by a simple model which assumes that approx.10% of the neutronsmore » are knocked out at an early stage of the collision along the direction of the nuclear motion. Except for the preequilibrium component the neutron multiplicities are in good agreement with the predictions of evaporation model calculations.« less
  • Projectilelike residue yields and momentum distributions from the reaction of 70 MeV/nucleon [sup 86]Kr with [sup 27]Al at 0[degree] were studied. The data is compared with a model developed originally for higher energies ([gt]200 MeV/nucleon), data from prior experiments performed at both higher and lower bombarding energies, and a semiempirical parametrization derived from high energy systematics.
  • Neutrons and charged light and intermediate-mass products from the {sup 197}Au+{sup 86}Kr reaction at E{sub lab}/A=35 MeV were measured with 4{pi} angular coverage, in coincidence with projectilelike (PLFs) and targetlike fragments (TLFs). The characteristics of PLF and TLF yields and their correlation with neutron, light-charged particles, and intermediate-mass fragments (IMFs) are consistent with a scenario where essentially all collisions proceed through a dissipative stage. It is found that the damping of the available kinetic energy into thermal excitation is essentially incomplete, with no positive evidence for complete damping. Slow, massive reaction products are observed with significant yields. These products, termedmore » also heavy residues, are identified as TLF evaporation residues and as TLF fission fragments. The TLF fission mode is seen to fade away in favor of TLF evaporation residue production for excitation energies above 3--4 MeV/nucleon. The suppression of the TLF fission can be traced to the dynamical IMF production process which reduces considerably the sizes of the primary reaction fragments and, hence, their fissility.« less
