Studying heavy-ion collisions with FAUST-QTS Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Heavy-ion collisions at lower energies provide a rich environment for investigating reaction dynamics. Recent theory has suggested a sensitivity to the symmetry energy and the equation of state via deformations of the reaction system and ternary breaking of the deformed reaction partners into three heavy fragments. A new detection system has been commissioned at Texas AandM University in an attempt to investigate some of the observables sensitive to the nuclear equation of state.
