Probing the nuclear EOS with GeV light-ion beams
Additional Document Info
The first 4 studies of identified light-charged-particles and IMFs emitted in the p, - + 197Au reactions above 5 GeV/c are reported. Multiplicity and angular distributions show little sensitivity to either bombarding energy or projectile type. Excitation energy distributions obtained from data for the 4.8 GeV 3He + 197Au reaction yield values up to E* 1500 MeV and E*/Aresidue 10 MeV/nucleon. Analysis of large-angle, IMF-IMF correlations for this same system suggests that multifragmentationis a fast, time-dependent process.
