Has Nucleonic Matter at the Critical Point Been Produced in Recent Multifragmentation Experiments? Academic Article uri icon


  • For nuclei in five different mass regions the critical temperatures, at which the surface tension vanishes, are derived from information on the liquid branch of the coexistence curve. These critical temperatures increase with increasing mass and, for higher masses are well above recently reported critical temperatures obtained from Fisher Droplet model and percolation model analyses. However, for the lowest mass region nuclei, with 30
