Correlation between directed transverse flow and nuclear stopping around the energy of vanishing flow

Original paper


We aim to study correlation between directed transverse flow \(\langle P_{x}^{{\rm dir}} \rangle \) and nuclear stopping \(\langle R \rangle \) for asymmetric reactions both at Fermi and intermediate energies for the mass asymmetric reactions having total mass 80, 160 and 240 units. The mass asymmetry of reactions varies between 0 and 0.5. Our study reveals that at high incident energy, correlation between the directed transverse flow and nuclear stopping follows a linear behavior, while at low incident energy, it follows a parabolic behavior. This correlation between nuclear stopping and directed transverse flow is stout and is independent of the total mass for all asymmetries.
