Multinucleon Transmissions in 18O (35 MeV/Nucleon) + 181Ta (9Be) Reactions


The velocity, charge, and isotopic distributions of the products of nuclear reactions with 2 ≤ Z ≤ 11 have been studied in combinations of 18O (35 MeV/nucleon) + 181Та (9Ве) with a different isotope spin. The correlation of the isotope yields for the detected light elements with value Qgg has been established. The cross sections for the formation of neutron-rich nuclei have been measured and their yields in reactions with different neutron skin have been compared. A qualitative interpretation of the phenomenon of a significant increase in the probability of the formation of neutron-rich nuclei of light elements in reaction 18О (35 MeV/nucleon) + 181Та in comparison with 18О (35 MeV/nucleon) + 9Ве obtained in the reactions with the removal of a proton from the projectile nucleus has also been presented.
