Thermodynamic Variables from Spectator Decay

  • W. Trautmann

Abstract

The Van-der-Waals-type range dependence of the nuclear forces has provided a good part of the motivation for fragmentation studies. The predictions of a liquid-gas phase transition in nuclear matter1,2 have raised the hope that signals of it may be identified in reactions of finite nuclei. The observation of multifragmentation3,4,5 represented a major breakthrough in this direction, as it indicated that the created nuclear systems may actually pass through states of high temperature and low density during the later stages of the reaction. Multifragmentation has been predicted6,7 to be the dominant decay mode under such conditions that are similar to those expected for the coexistence region in the nuclear-matter phase diagram.
