Reducibility, Thermal and Mass Scaling in Angular Correlations from Multifragmentation Reactions
The azimuthal angular correlations of light charged particles and light intermediate mass fragments emitted from the reaction 36Ar+197Au at E/A=50MeV are found to be reducible to the angular distributions of individual fragments. Thermal scaling is also observed in the coefficients of the angular correlations. Furthermore, the observed scaling with fragment mass seems to imply secondary emission from relatively small ( A≈15–30) primary fragments.
