Probing neutron correlations through nuclear break-up

Abstract : The effect of initial correlations between nucleons on the nuclear break-up mechanism is studied. A quantum transport theory which extends standard mean-field approach is developed to incorporate short range pairing correlation as well as direct nucleon-nucleon collisions. A time evolution of the nuclear break-up from a correlated system leading to the emission of two particles to the continuum is performed. We show that initial correlations has strong influence on relative angles between particle emitted in coincidence. The nuclear break-up is proposed as a tool to infer the residual interaction between nucleons in the nuclear medium.
