The properties of the kinetic energy spectra of light isotopes produced in the breakup of a nuclear source and during the deexcitation of its products are examined. The initial stage, at which the hot fragments are created, is modeled by the Statistical Multifragmentation Model, whereas the Weisskopf-Ewing evaporation treatment is adopted to describe the subsequent fragment deexcita- tion, as they follow their classical trajectories dictated by the Coulomb repulsion among them. The energy…

Isotopic dependence of the fragments' internal temperatures determined from multifragment emission
The internal temperatures of fragments produced by an excited nuclear source are investigated using the microcanonical version of the Statistical Multifragmentation Model, with discrete energy. We


Internal and kinetic temperatures of fragments in the framework of a nuclear statistical multifragmentation model
The agreement between the fragments' internal and kinetic temperatures with the breakup temperature is investigated using a Statistical Multifragmentation Model which makes no a priori as- sumption
Many-particle correlations and Coulomb effects on temperatures from fragment momentum fluctuations
We investigate correlations in the fragment momentum distribution due to the propagation of fragments under the influence of their mutual Coulomb field, after the breakup of an excited nuclear
Experimental reconstruction of excitation energies of primary hot isotopes in heavy ion collisions near the Fermi energy
The excitation energies of the primary hot isotopes in multifragmentation events are experimentally reconstructed in the reaction system 64Zn + 112Sn at 40 MeV/nucleon. A kinematical focusing method
Systematic description of evaporation spectra for light and heavy compound nuclei
To systematically describe evaporation spectra for light and heavy compound nuclei over a large range of excitation energies, it was necessary to consider three ingredients in the statistical model.
Statistical decay of very hot nuclei-the production of large clusters
Heavy ion collisions are the only tools that enable us to reach compressions of nuclear matter up to a factor of about three. Theories of the collision dynamics that are necessary in order to extract
Probing the nuclear liquid-gas phase transition.
The fragment distributions resulting from Au+Au collisions at an incident energy of {ital E}/{ital A}=600 MeV and the mass and the excitation energy of the decaying prefragments were determined.
Nuclear multifragmentation within the framework of different statistical ensembles
The sensitivity of the statistical multifragmentation model to the underlying statistical assumptions is investigated. We concentrate on its microcanonical, canonical, and isobaric formulations. As
