Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The transverse momenta [Formula Presented] of projectile fragments produced by [Formula Presented] nuclei incident on Au and C targets have been measured. The medium and heavy fragments have [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] distributions, which are wider than predicted by models. For the Au target the widths of the distributions are significantly larger than those for C, particularly for the heavy fragments. The C distributions show a different gross structure, which may be due to the target-projectile size difference.
