Abstract The coalescence model based on nucleon distribution functions from an isospin-dependent transport model is used to study the production of deuteron, triton, and 3 He from heavy-ion collisions induced by neutron-rich nuclei at intermediate energies. It is found that the emission time of these light clusters depends on their masses. For clusters with same momentum per nucleon, heavier ones are emitted earlier. Both the yield and energy spectrum of light clusters are sensitive to the…

TLDR
The density dependence of the nuclear symmetry energy affects significantly the nucleon emission times in heavy-ion collisions, leading to larger values of two-nucleon correlation functions for a symmetry energy that has a stronger density dependence.
