The properties oflight particles emitted by the32S +27Al reaction at 135and 190 MeV bombarding energies were studied by means of a coincidence spectrometer. The spectrometer consisted of two large-area ionization chambers which measured the energy, momentum, mass and nuclear charge of the heavy reaction products. By requiring the conservation of those quantities the energy, momentum, mass and charge deficits were determined which are representative of the unobserved light particles. The analysis of the momentum deficit in the event plane did not yield an indication for a fast, direct process of light-particle emission. The alternative analysis in the fragments rest system confirmed the statistical nature of the emission process. The out-of-plane angular correlations were used to determine the spins of the particle-emitting fragments. © 1981.
