An experiment was performed to investigate Î±-condensate states via high Î±-particle multiplicity breakup. The nucleus of interest was28Si therefore to measure multiplicity 7 particle breakup events, a highly granular detector with a high solid angle coverage was required. For this purpose, the CHIMERA and FARCOS detectors at INFN LNS were employed. Particle identification was achieved through ÎE-E energy loss. The Î±-particle multiplicity was measured at three beam energies to investigate different excitation regimes in28Si. At a beam energy where the energy is sufficient to provide the 7 Î±-particles with enough energy to be identified using the ÎE-E method, multiplicity 7 events can be seen. Given these high multiplicity events, the particles can be reconstructed to investigate the breakup of Î±-condensate states. Analysing the decay paths of these states can elucidate whether the state of interest corresponds to a non-cluster, clustered or condensed state.
