Coulomb corrections to experimental temperatures and densities in Fermi-energy heavy-ion collisions Academic Article uri icon


  • The quantum-fluctuation method using Coulomb corrections is explored to extract temperatures and densities of hot nuclear systems produced in Fermi-energy heavy-ion collisions. The role of the neutron-proton asymmetry of the system was investigated. Temperature values were observed to not depend on the system neutron-proton asymmetry while a clear dependence is seen for density values. Coulomb corrections have been shown to lower temperature values by almost 2 MeV. On the other hand, density results exhibit a small variation. 2014 American Physical Society.
