Abstract

Two-particle azimuthal correlations have been used to extract reaction plane dispersion free triple-differential cross sections for d, t, and α particles for the midcentral collisions of 84Kr+197Au at E/A=35, 55, and 70 MeV. Both experimental measurements and extrapolations from lower incident energies suggest that rotational flow disappears at E/A≈100 MeV for light charged particles and that reaction plane dispersions introduce large uncertainties in extracting the disappearance of rotational flow.
