Multigramentation of Nuclei

  • Christian Ngô
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 205)


One uses often heavy ion nuclear reactions to convert all or part of the incident kinetic energy of the projectile (which is provided by the accelerator) into other forms of excitation. This is done with the following questions in mind:
  1. 1-

    How much of the incident kinetic energy can we convert?

  2. 2-

    Is this transfer of energy used to excite collective degrees of freedom or to create incoherent excitations (heat)?

  3. 3-

    Which part of the system is concerned with this energy transfer: the projectile, the target, the composite system, part of them…?
