Abstract

A statistical model is presented which describes light fragment formation in high energy nuclear collisions. Data from 20Ne+U collisions at 250 and 400 MeV/nucleon indicate statistical coalescence of a nuclear fireball occurs at temperatures of 30-40 MeV. In an independent particle model the proton activities determined imply a baryon density at breakup which is 2 5 that of normal nuclear matter.
