Title: Isotopic Dependence of the Nuclear Caloric Curve

Abstract

The A/Z dependence of projectile fragmentation at relativistic energies has been studied with the ALADIN forward spectrometer at SIS. A stable beam of {sup 124}Sn and radioactive beams of {sup 124}La and {sup 107}Sn at 600 MeV per nucleon have been used in order to explore a wide range of isotopic compositions. Chemical freeze-out temperatures are found to be nearly invariant with respect to the A/Z of the produced spectator sources, consistent with predictions for expanded systems. Small Coulomb effects ({delta}T{approx_equal}0.6 MeV) appear for residue production near the onset of multifragmentation.
