Fragmentation of relativistic heavy ions
The first experiments on the fragment yields in reactions with relativistic heavy ions are explained on the basis of a two-stage mechanism of the process. During the first stage the ion is excited by peripheral collision with the target nucleus, and during the second stage it decays statistically in flight and emits the fragment.
