An energydependent numerical model for the condensation probability, γ j
The “condensation” probability, γ _{j}, is an important variable in the preequilibrium stage of nuclear spallation reactions. It represents the probability that p _{j} excited nucleons (excitons) will “condense” to form complex particle type j in the excited residual nucleus. In addition, it has a significant impact on the emission width, or probability of emitting fragment type j from the residual nucleus. Previous formulations for γ _{j} were energyindependent and valid for fragments up to ^{4}He only. This paper explores the formulation of a new model for γ _{j}, one which is energydependent and valid for up to ^{28}Mg, and which provides improved fits compared to experimental fragment spectra.
