The reactions 78 Kr + 40 Ca and 86 Kr + 48 Ca realized at 10 AMeV, have been studied in Catania at LNS with the 4π multidetector CHIMERA. For these systems, we have already studied the fusion-evaporation and fission-like processes. Now we will present a study of the break-up of the Projectile-Like Fragment (PLF) into two fragments, following more violent deep-inelastic collision. A selection method has been developed, in order to discriminate PLF break-up from events due to other mechanisms, fusion-fission-like processes, which populate the same region of the phase-space. A preference for PLF aligned break-up, along the direction of the PLF-TLF separation axis with the light fragment emitted in the backward part, has been evidenced, suggesting dynamical-nonequilibrium effects. The isospin is expected to play a crucial role in the onset of this process; a comparison between the neutron-rich 86 Kr + 48 Ca system and neutron-poor 78 Kr + 40 Ca one will be presented.

Abstract

We studied isotropization and thermalization of the quark-gluon plasma produced by decaying color-electric flux tubes created at the very early stages of relativistic heavy ion collisions. We coupled the dynamical evolution of the initial field, which decays to a plasma by the Schwinger mechanism, to the dynamics of the many particles system produced by the decay. The evolution of such a system is described by relativistic transport theory at fixed values of the viscosity over entropy density ratio. Within a single self-consistent calculation scheme we computed quantities which serve as indicators of the equilibration of the plasma for a 1+1 dimensional expanding geometry. We find that the initial color-electric field decays within 1 fm/c and particles production occurs in less than 1 fm/c; however, in the case of large viscosity oscillations of the field appear along the entire time evolution of the system, affecting also the behaviour of the ratio between longitudinal and transverse pressure.
