Knock-out nucleons from relativistic nuclear collisions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A nonequilibrium single-scattering mechanism is proposed to describe the inclusive proton spectrum from relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Data from Ne20 + U and He4 + U collisions are shown to be consistent with a simple model of the knock-out process. Two-proton azimuthal angle correlations are suggested as a unique signature of this reaction mechanism.
