1, Symmetry energy and n/p effective mass splitting
Isospin asymmetric Equation of State
It is a fundamental properties of nuclear matter, and is very important for understanding
S(r) is the density dependence of symmetry energy, it is a key ingredient of the isospin asymmetric EOS. However, S(r) uncertainty
the symmetry energy information can be extracted. Indirectly! (depends on models)
Recent progress: constraints on symmetry energy at subsaturation density
M.B.Tsang, Yingxun Zhang, et.al., PRL2009
ImQMD (DR, Ri, R7) 50MeV/A, 35MeV/A,
Challenges in the constraints on symmetry energy:
Different in detail ！
Momentum dependence of symmetry potential is the most important one among these factors
Y.X.Zhang, et.al., PLB664, 145(2008); from BALi, et.al., PRL and PLB
……momentum dependence of symmetry potential, which would lead to very different magnitude and density …, effective mass of nucleons…, is expected to significantly affect the n/p ratios, …..
However, Momentum dependence of symmetry potential (n/p effective mass splitting)is Uncertainty! We need to constrain it as well as density dependence of symmetry energy.
Besides depending on the nuclear density, the symmetry energy also depends on the momentum or energy of a nucleon.
For cold nuclear matter
Here, we would like to constrain the symmetry energy and n/p effective mass splitting simultaneously by comparing HIC data with the transport model calculations.
One of best choices in transport models is to use full Skyrme EDF
The Skyrme parameter sets have been adjusted for fitting the properties of nuclear matter, binding energy, actinide fission barrier, masses, …… Thus, E0, K0, S0, L, Ksym, m*_s, m*_v, ……. are correlated.
In Skyrme EDF, one can easily choose different values S0, L, Ksym, m*_s, m*_v for similar K_0.
If one use the Skyrme interaction in transport models, one could get the constraints on Skyrme parameters, also on symmetry energy and n/p effective mass splitting from reaction data simultaneously.
2, Probing the symmetry energy and n/p effective mass splitting
New version of ImQMD
YX Zhang, ZXLi, HLiu, Tsang(2012)
Select four parameter sets
K0 = 230 ± 20MeV, S0 = 32 ± 2MeV,
different L and n/p effective mass splitting.
Density dependence of symmetry energy , and the symmetry potential as a function of nucleon energy
Zhang, Li, Liu, Tsang (2012)
Isospin diffusion and isospin transport ratios as a function of rapidity
Isospin diffusion occurs only in asymmetric systems A+B, and diffusion ability depends on the symmetry energy and n/p effective mass splitting.
For m*n<m*p, the isospin diffusion process is accelerated due to larger Lane potential at subsaturation density.
In absence of isospin diffusion R=1 or R=-1,
R~0 for isospin equilibrium
Ri(SLy4, L=46MeV, m*_n<m*_p)<Ri(SkM*, L=46MeV, m*_n>m*_p) <Ri(SkI2, L=104MeV, m*_n<m*_p)<Ri(Gs, L=93MeV, m*_n>m*_p)
Riismore sensitive to L than n/p effective mass splitting.
The calculated results of Ri from SLy4 and SkM* can fall in the data range.
For SLy4 and SkM*, they have S0=30-32MeV, L=46MeV
Chi-square analysis on Ri(y)
The Ri(y) data fit the results from SkM* among four parameter sets.
S0=30MeV, L=46Mev, Ksym=-156MeV, m*=0.79 and m*n>m*p
n/p and DR(n/p) ratios as a function of kinetic energy
Ebeam=50AMeV, 124Sn+124Sn, 112Sn+112Sn
Y(n)/Y(p) and DR(n/p) are more sensitive to n/p effective mass splitting than L
n/p and DR(n/p) at different beam energy
SLy4 (S0=32MeV, L=46MeV, m*n<m*p)
SkM*(S0=30MeV, L=46MeV, m*n>m*p)
1, Developed a new version of ImQMD which can accommodate the Standard Skyrme interaction in parameters. It can bridge the reaction and structure study by using same EDF.
2, The Ri and Ri(y) support the SLy4 and SkM* interactions, they have L=46MeV.
3, Isospin diffusion data Ri(y) prefer to SkM*, the neutron effective mass is greater than proton effective mass (mn*>mp*), but it is not a strong constraint with deep chi-2 minimum.
4, neutron proton effective mass splitting (isospin dependent MDI) plays an important role on the Y (n)/Y (p) ratios of transverseemitted nucleons at high kinetic energy.
5, The n/p effective nucleon masses should be further studied at intermediate energy per nucleon and more calculations are needed.
