Interferometry of the compound nucleus


We consider interference effects in the inclusive emission of two identical particles from a compound nucleus. Statistical assumptions result in a correlation of the emitted particles that depends upon the coherence properties of the level widths in a form similar to that describing fluctuations in an exclusive cross section. A schematic application to the decay of a rapidly rotating compound nucleus shows that the observed source size can depend upon the kinematics of the measurement.
