Pion bremsstrahlung and critical phenomena in relativistic nuclear collisions


Journal Article

We investigate the dependence of pion bremsstrahlung on the deceleration of the nuclei in relativistic heavy ion collisions. The vicinity of an abnormal phase in nuclear matter can lead - owing to critical N-N scattering - to faster deceleration or decreasing transparency of the nuclei. This would result in a threshold enhancement of the pion bremsstrahlung cross section, which in turn can be used to search for abnormal nuclear states experimentally. © 1980.
