Expansion Effects In Intermediate Energy Heavy-Ion Reactions
Transverse kinetic energy spectra of fragments in the reaction 36Ar + 197Au are used to probe the multifragmentation mechanism at intermediate energies. The mass dependence of the average transverse kinetic energy is examined in the context of the statistical decay of an expanding, emitting source. The role of source expansion during emission is explored. Results suggest the onset of volume emission at the highest incident energy.
