Liquid-gas coexistence in 208Pb-emulsion interactions at 160A GeV
Review articleOpen access

AbstractThe charge distribution of multifragments of the 208Pb beam at 160A GeV in nuclear emulsion has been fitted with a power-law. The moments of the resulting nuclear charged fragment distribution dis provide strong evidence that nuclear matter possesses critical point observables. The values of the critical exponents (γ, β and τ) extracted from the 208Pb beam are compared with the values for the 197Au beams at 10.6A GeV and 1A GeV. These values are very close to those for a liquid-gas system.
