Impact Parameter Filters for 36Ar + 197Au Collisions at E/A = 50, 80 and 110 MeV
Collisions between 36Ar projectiles and 197Au target nuclei at have been studied with the MSU Miniball, a 4π phoswich array with a low detection threshold. Various impact-parameter filters, based upon total charged-particle multiplicity, transverse energy, midrapidity charge and multiplicity of emitted hydrogen nuclei, are compared and cross-correlated. The relative selectivity of each prescription for small impact-parameter collisions is evaluated by assessing the suppression of fast-particle emission at forward angles.
