Abstract
Time scales, emission orders and the corresponding fractions of light produ cts from the light heavy-ion reactions O-16 + B-10 (E-lab = 62.5 MeV) and O -16 + C-12 (E-lab = 64.0 MeV), have been determined through the utilization of a technique based on the analysis of the experimental small-angle parti cle-particle correlations and velocity difference spectra. A three-body tra jectory Monte Carlo simulation code was used to fit the data and provide th e quantities of interest. For the case of compound nucleus decay, the resul ts are consistent with predictions from the standard statistical model and show that the technique could also be used for the determination of fission time scales.
