Determination of the temperature of a disassembling nucleus from fragment yields Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We derive a relation between the temperature [Formula Presented] of the disassembling excited nucleus and the double ratio [Formula Presented] of fragment yields within the macrocanonical description by adopting Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics and the Wigner-Seitz approximation for the Coulomb interaction between fragments and imposing only the condition of thermal equilibrium. Under the same assumptions, this relation between [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented], which differs from that of Albergo et al. by a Coulomb term, is also derived within the canonical description by considering realistic values for the multiplicities of fragments. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
