  8. Two-Nucleon Correlation Functions How to detect the space-time structure of nucleon emission experimentally? The two-particle correlation function is obtained by convoluting the emission function g(p,x), i.e., the probability of emitting a particle with momentum p from space-time point x=(r,t), with the relative wave function of the two particle, i.e., The two-particle correlation function is a sensitive probe to the space-time structure of particle emission source by final state interaction and quantum statistical effects (φ(q,r)) Correlation After Burner: including final-state nuclear and Coulomb interactions (Scott Pratt, NPA 566, 103 (1994))

  9. Symmetry Energy Effects on Two-Nucleon Correlation Functions Pairs with P>500 MeV: n-n CF: 20% p-p CF: 20% n-p CF: 30% Effects are very small for both isoscalar potential and N-N cross sections Chen,Greco,Ko,Li, PRL90, PRC68, (2003)

Light Cluster Production and Coalescence Model Butler,Pearson,Sato,Yazaki,Gyulassy,Frankel,Remler,Dove,Scheibl,Heinz,Mattiello,Nagle,Polleri, Biro,Zimanyi,Levai,Csizmadia,Hwa,Yang,Ko,Lin,Voloshin,Molnar,Greco,Fries,Muller,Nonaka,Bass,… The covariant coalescence model • Depends on constituents’ space-time structure at freeze-out • Neglecting the binding energy effect (T>>Ebinding), Coalescence probability: Wigner phase-space density in the rest-frame of the cluster. • Rare process has been assumed (the coalescence process can be treated perturbatively). • Higher energy collisions and higher energy cluster production! Chen,Ko,Li, PRC68; NPA729

  11. Dynamical coalescence model

  13. Wigner phase-space density for t/3He Assume nucleon wave function in t/3He can be described by the harmonic oscillator wave function, i.e., t/3He Wigner phase-space density and root-mean-square radius:

  14. Isospin symmetric collisions at E/A≈100 MeV Try Coalescence model at intermediate energies! • Deuteron energy spectra reproduced • Low energy tritons slightly underestimated • Inverse slope parameter of 3He underestimated; probably due toneglect of • larger binding effect • stronger Coulomb effect • wave function Data are taken from INDRA Collaboration (P. Pawlowski, EPJA9) Chen,Ko,Li, NPA729

  15. Symmetry Energy Effects on t/3He ratio • Stiffer symmetry energy gives smaller t/3He ratio • With increasing kinetic energy, t/3He ratio increases for soft symmetry energy but slightly decreases for stiff symmetry energy

  28. Summary • Two-particle correlation functions and t/3He ratio are • useful probes of the nuclear symmetry energy • The sub-saturated density behavior of the symmetry energy • become more and more clear from the isospin diffusion and • isoscaling, and n-skin of Pb • The high density behavior of the symmetry energy and the momentum dependence of the symmetry potential need much further effort Thank you! 谢谢大家!
