Heavy Ion Physics


Inclusive alpha particle and deuteron spectra from collisions of 156 MeV6Li-ions with12C and208Pb were measured at extreme forward emission angles including zero degree. The measurements were performed with the Karlsruhe magnetic spectrograph ‘Little John’ and required an efficient reduction of the background from small-angle scattering. The observed double differential cross sections and angular distributions have been analysed on the basis of Serber's spectator break-up model. When going to angles smaller than grazing, where Coulomb effects are expected to be dominating, transitional features may appear. Corresponding effects probably associated with Coulomb break-up are observed with the208Pb-target and require a slight extension of the Serber approach. In the case of the12C-target the break-up cross sections in forward direction seem to reflect the shape of the internal momentum distribution of the alpha particle and deuteron cluster in the6Li-projectile and are in agreement with a 2S-type wave function. However, at larger angles the shape appears to be distorted, possibly by final state interactions.
