Abstract Nuclear reactions often proceed via fusion of projectile and target into a thermalized compound nucleus. For hot compound nuclei of temperature ≈1-5 MeV one expects that a chain of particles (neutrons, protons, alphas...) will be evaporated with a variety of time intervals of ≈10^(-22)-10^(-20)s. The determination ofthese emission times is a major challenge for nuclear physicists. Such time intervals are too short to measure directly, but they do lead to final-state interactions between ... Title of program: KALLIOPI Catalogue Id: ABRU_v1_0 Nature of problem If two charged particles are emitted from the same compound nucleus within a short time interval (e.g. <10^-20s), then they may experience observable final-state interactions. The strength of these interactions is related to the size and lifetime (space-time extent) of the emitter. This program simulates the particle-particle correlations to be expected if the emitter lifetime is long enough (>/=10^-22s) to dominate the effective space-time extent of the source. One measures the correlations b ...
