Isospin effects in fragmentation reactions

Fragmentation reactions induced by relativistic heavy ions are characterized by large fluctuations in excitation energy and isospin. These features justifies the interest of this reaction mechanism for the production of nuclei far from stability. A particularly interesting reaction channel proving those fluctuations is the nucleon removal. Moreover, those processes are of interest to characterize the structural properties of the nuclei involved in the reactions.
