Abstract

Some aspects of heavy ion collisions are explored for intermediate energies, up to the Fermi energy. The evolution of central collisions from processes with nearly complete dissipation at low energies to incomplete fusion at high energies is discussed. Selection criteria are discussed for the more central collisions based on light charged particle multiplicities. For reactions of 40Ar (280, 680, 1080 and 1360 MeV) measurements of heavy products in coincidence with charged particles show many aspects of complete fusion processes at 280 MeV and of incomplete fusion processes at the higher energies.
