Four-particle Dalitz plots to visualize atomic break-up processes
2007 (English)In: Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, ISSN 0953-4075, E-ISSN 1361-6455, Vol. 40, no 15, 3091-3099 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We introduce a new method to analyse four-body fragmentation processes, which is basically an extension of Dalitz plots commonly used in particle physics to analyse three-body fragmentation processes. It enables for the first time the presentation of multiple differential cross sections as a function of all four fragments without loss of any part of the total cross section in the integral spectrum. As a first example, the technique is applied to ionization processes in atomic collisions.
