Abstract

Results from the study of isospin asymmetric Sn+Sn collisions at E/A=35 MeV and 50 MeV, collected with the LASSA and the Chimera detectors at the NSCL of MSU, respectively, are shown. The diffusion of neutrons and protons between projectiles and targets with different N/Z-asymmetries is studied by means of imbalance ratios measurements. The obtained results and their comparison to transport model simulations provide constraints on the density dependence of the symmetry energy. The systematic study of these phenomena at different impact parameters also allows us to explore isospin transparency and stopping phenomena in more central collisions, with important implications about the attainment of chemical equilibrium in central collisions at 35 MeV/nucleon.
