Light particle correlations for the He3+Ag reaction at 200 MeV Academic Article uri icon


  • Two-proton correlation functions, measured at small relative momenta in the He3+Ag reaction at 200 MeV, increase monotonically with the kinetic energy of the detected particles. Very strong correlations are observed for intermediate energy protons. These correlations scale with the weaker correlation functions measured for heavier projectiles, and can be reproduced by the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck equation. Even stronger correlations measured for beam velocity protons, however, may be remnants of the initial state wave functions of the He3 projectiles. © 1991 The American Physical Society.
