Production of neutron-rich nuclei in fragmentation reactions of 132Sn projectiles at relativistic energies

Abstract : The fragmentation of neutron-rich 132Sn nuclei produced in the fission of 238U projectiles at 950 AMeV has been investigated at the FRagment Separator (FRS) at GSI. This work represents the first investigation of fragmentation of medium-mass radioactive projectiles with a large neutron excess. The measured production cross sections of the residual nuclei are relevant for the possible use of a two-stage reaction scheme (fission + fragmentation) for the production of extremely neutron-rich medium-mass nuclei in future rare-ion-beam facilities. Moreover, the new data will provide a better understanding of the "memory" effect in fragmentation reactions.
