Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A complete systematics of global stopping and side flow for heavy ion reactions in the energy range between 0.09A and 1.93A GeV was analyzed. A plateau of maximal stopping extending from about 0.2A to 0.8A GeV with a fast drop on both sides was observed, for the heaviest system, Au + Au. The rapidity distributions of the emitted particles were measured to obtain information on the degree of stopping. The degree of stopping was found to be highly correlated to the amount of side flow.
