Abstract
The forward part of the new 4 pi detector Chimera has been recently install ed at Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS) in Catania. Beams of Sn-112 and Sn -124 at 35 MeV/nucl., useful for physics, were delivered on March 2000. Int ermediate mass fragments (IMF) production and isospin effects in nuclear mu ltifragmentation were investigated in reverse kinematics using Al-27, Ni-58 ,Ni-64 targets. A good on line isotopic identification of IMF and charged l ight particles (LCP) was obtained using DeltaE-E, DeltaE-Time of flight (TO F) and pulse shaping methods. Some preliminary results obtained on both ele mental and isotopic distribution of light fragments show sizeable entrance channel isospin dependence.
