Distribution of Isospin during Fragmentation of Excited Quasiprojectiles from the reactions of Si-28+Sn-112,Sn-124 at 30 and 50 MeV/nucleon Conference Paper uri icon


  • We have created quasiprojectiles of varying isospin via peripheral reactions of 28 Si with 112,124Sn at 30 and 50 MeV/nucleon. An enhanced neutron richness is observed in the light fragments with a corresponding decrease in neutron content of the heavier fragments. The enhancement of the neutron-rich light fragments changes dramatically with the N/Z of the reconstructed quasiprojectile. This non-homogeneous distribution of isospin is larger at the lower energy.
