Nuclear Symmetry energy and Intermediate heavy ion reactions R. Wada, M. Huang, W. Lin, X. Liu IMP, CAS

Symmetry Energy of nuclear matter What is important for Symmetry energy at T>>1 and dense or diluted nuclear matter? 1. Heavy ion collisions -- Symmetry energy is one of key factors to determine isotope distribution 2. Astrophysics -- Radius and cooling of neutron stars E sym (ρ) = E(N=A,N=0) – E(N=Z,A) : Energy difference between the symmetric nuclear matter (N=Z) and neutron matter E(ρ,δ)/A = {E(ρ,δ=0) + S(ρ) δ 2 }/A : δ = (N-Z)/A asymmetry

A BE=17.87 ̶ 8.95A ̶ a sym I2/A BE=Mass Formula BE=17.87 ̶ 8.95A N=Z Weizsäcker-Bethe mass formula M(Z,N) = a v A – a s A 2/3 – a c Z(Z-1)/A 1/3 – a sym (N-Z) 2 /A – δ(N,Z)

According to the Modified Fisher Model, the yield is given by Y(N,Z) = y 0 A ̶ τ · exp(-F/T) (ρ n ) N (ρ p ) Z = y 0 A ̶ τ · exp[(W(N,Z)+μ n N+ μ p Z)/T], W(N,Z) can be given by the following generalized Weizsäcker-Bethe semi-classical mass formulation at a given T and density ρ, W(N,Z) = a v (ρ,T)A – a s (ρ,T)A 2/3 – a c (ρ,T)Z(Z-1)/A 1/3 – a sym (ρ,T) I 2 /A – δ(N,Z) I=N-Z and δ is the paring energy, given by = δ 0 (for odd-odd nucleus) δ(N,Z) = 0 (for even-odd nucleus) = -δ 0 (for even-even nucleus). 1. Isotope yield and Symmetry energy Related fragments For convenience, Y(N,Z) = Y(I,A) ; I = N-Z, A = N+Z (M. Huang et al., PRC 81, 044620 (2010) ) Related reaction systems N=Z

Y(I+2,A) = C A −τ exp{ [a v A – a s A 2/3 – a c (Z-1)(Z-2)/A 1/3 – a sym (I+2) 2 /A– δ(N+1,Z-1) +μ n (N+1)+μ p (Z-1)]/T } Y(I,A) = C A −τ exp{ [ a v A – a s A 2/3 – a c Z(Z-1)/A 1/3 – a sym I 2 /A – δ(N,Z) +μ n N+μ p Z]/T} R(I+2,I,A) = exp{ [2a c ·(Z-1)/A 1/3 – a sym ·4(I+1)/A– δ(N+1,Z-1) + δ(N,Z)]/T } · exp[(μ n - μ p )/T] 1.Yield 2. Ratio cancel out When we focused on isotopes with same A in a given reaction, then For I= –1, drop out For even-odd, drop out Reaction system

Symmetry energy term: R(I+2,I,A) = exp{[2a c ·(Z-1)/A 1/3 – a sym ·4(I+1)/A– δ(N+1,Z-1) + δ(N,Z)]/T}·exp[(μ n - μ p )/T] When I = 1, N – Z = odd, so (N,Z) is even-odd or odd-even.  – δ(N+1,Z-1) + δ(N,Z) = 0. ln[R(3,1,A)] = [2a c ·(Z-1)/A 1/3 – 8a sym /A]/T + (μ n - μ p )/T Exp.

Two issues: 1. Sequential decay in the cooling process drastically change the isotope distributions and causes a significant mass dependence of the symmetry energy. 2. Temperature (and density) cannot be determine uniquely. Y(N,Z) = y 0 A ̶ τ · exp[(W(N,Z)+μ n N+ μ p Z)/T], T relates all parameters by in a/T terms. No density information. 64 Zn+ 112 Sn @ 40 A MeV ( 40 Ca+ 40 Ca @ 35 A MeV ) have been studied in detail. Thermometers a. Kinematic energy slope b. Excited-state population c. Double isotope ratio d.

T=T 0 (1- kA) k is determined iteratively; I.) In the first round k=k 1 =0. II.) Use step 1-3 to calculate all parameters and extract ρ, T and a sym values. III.) Determine a new slope parameter k’ from the temperature distribution. if k’=0, then stop and extract T 0. Otherwise set a new k as k 2 =k 1 +1/2(k’). Repeat the procedure II.) 1. For I = ─ 1 2.

Mass Dependent apparent Temperature 1.Distribute the thermal energy to each fragemt by a Maxwellian distribution as 2. Require the momentum conservation. larger fragment has less probable to have large momentum  larger fragments have smaller temperature Fluctuation thermometer results in a flat temperature AMD : 40 Ca+ 40 Ca @ 35 AMeV 3.A smaller system has a larger mass dependence 40 Zn+ 112 Sn @ 40 AMeV

Summary: 1. Sequential decay modified the isotope distribution of the final products.  This makes difficult to extract the properties of the fragmenting system at the freeze-out density. 5. The mass-dependent apparent temperature originates from the momentum conservation in the fragmentation system and it is system-mass dependent. Smaller systems show a larger mass dependence. 4. Modified Fisher Model is extended with an apparent mass-dependent temperature and ρ/ρ0 = 0.65 +/- 0.2, a sym = 23.1 +/- 0.6 MeV, T=5.0 +/- 0.4 MeV are determined. 3. Modified Fisher Model and a self-consistent method is applied for the reconstructed isotope distributions and AMD primary isotope distributions with different interactions in the symmetry energy density dependence. a. Density, temperature and symmetry energy values are extracted. b. Extracted temperature values show a mass dependence. 2. Kinematical focusing technique is applied to re construct the primary isotope distribution at the time of the fragment formation.

Thank you for your attention !

It is interesting to see how the density and temperature change as a function of incident energy. Unfortunately there are no available experimental data of the reconstructed isotope yield distributions in different incident energies. We performed AMD simulations at 35 - 300 AMeV for a 40 Ca+ 40 Ca system. 10,000 events were generated for b=0 fm at 35, 50, 80, 100, 140, 300 with g0,g0AS and g0ASS. Analyzed by the self-consistent method. (X. Liu et al., PRC in submission Oct. 2014) AMD with MFM and self-consistent method

Statistical nature in AMD 3. Mass distribution can be described by an statistical ensemble. (Furuta et al., PRC79, 014608 (2009)) Statistical ensembles are made by AMD to enclose 36 nucleons in a spherical volume with given T and ρ (Volume). Mass distributions are evaluated as a long time average. Same code is used for AMD simulations and the statistical ensemble generation. 40 Ca+ 40 Ca @ 35 A MeV
