Source Velocity in Collisions between 3.6 GeV Protons and a Gold Target


Invariant cross sections of carbon fragments are investigated for p(3.6 GeV) + Au collisions in terms of longitudinal versus transversal velocity components. It is found that fragments are emitted by one slowly moving source.
