Space-time Ambiguity of Two- and Three-fragment Reduced Velocity Correlation Functions
Reduced-velocity correlation functions between two and three intermediate mass fragments are compared for central Ar36+197Ar collisions at E/A=50 MeV. Previously published N-body Coulomb-trajectory calculations, capable of reproducing the measured two-fragment reduced velocity-correlation function, describe the measured three-fragment correlation function equally well. Moreover, ambiguities between source size and lifetime observed in the analysis of two-fragment correlations remain unresolved in the three-fragment correlation function.
