  1. Greiner, W; Müller, B; Soff, G, Delta electrons as a probe of strong magnetic fields in heavy ion collisions, Physics Letters A, vol. 69 no. 1 (1978), pp. 27-30 .

    We propose that the spin polarization of delta electrons should be used as a measure of the strong magnetic fields (B∼1017 G) induced by the nuclear motion in collisions of very heavy ions. The polarization is typically of the order of 10-20 percent in Pb-Pb and U-U collisions. We also discuss the bombarding energy dependence up to E1ab = 200MeV/u, where 500 keV level splitting between spin up and down states is obtained. © 1978.
