Abstract

An investigation of the production of neutron-rich isotopes from the fragmentation of Si28 projectiles at plab=14.6 GeV/c per nucleon was performed using the BNL-AGS-E814 spectrometer. We have measured the inclusive production cross sections of neutron-rich fragments (6He, He8, Li8, Li9, Be10, Be11, and B13). We have also measured the transverse momentum distributions for He6 and Li9, and the forward and transverse energy distributions associated with He6 production. The momentum distributions were analyzed in the context of the Goldhaber model. The question of whether the fragments are produced in the decay of the projectile following its electromagnetic excitation was also investigated.
