Equation of State Effects on Nucleon Transport Conference Paper uri icon


  • Previous studies have examined the nucleon transport in charge symmetric beam-on-target reaction systems as a probe for the asymmetry energy of nuclear matter. Using the iBUU transport model, isospin transport in charge symmetric as well as mass symmetric systems of Zn and Ni isotopes at 35 MeV/nucleon will be explored. Comparisons of the behavior of charge symmetric (70,64Zn + 70,64Zn) to mass symmetric (64Zn,64Ni + 64Zn,64Ni) reaction systems will be studied. The effect of different nucleon interactions will also be studied. This set of reaction systems will be used to determine what effect the difference in charge between projectile and target may have on the proton transport as compared to the neutron transport. These studies will be carried out with a view for use in the analysis of experimental data acquired using the NIMROD-ISiS array and TAMU Neutron Ball at the Cyclotron Institute at Texas A&M.
