Etude des propriétés de transport et d'équilibration de la matière nucléaire dans le domaine de l'énergie de Fermi

Abstract : The nuclear matter equation of the state is an essential tool in the description of heavy ion collisions,but also in the description of the formation of astrophysical objects or phenomena (neutron star structure,neutron stars fusion). Establishing the nuclear matter equation of state requires a proper definition of thethermodynamic conditions (density, temperature, proton/neutron asymmetry) in which the system evolves.In this work, we address the issue of equilibration reached in heavy ion collisions, in terms of energy andisospin. To do this, we use the experimental database of the INDRA array built by the collaboration over thepast 25 years, focusing on central collisions in the Fermi energy domain, between 10 and 100 MeV/nucleon.In this document, we present how, with the help of dedicated simulations, it has been possible to link thestopping power of nuclear matter to the in-medium nucleon-nucleon cross-section. We also provide someanswers regarding isospin transport in central collisions using the isobaric ratios A = 3 based on the tritonsand helium-3 particles. These different results allow us to highlight the new experimental apparatus devel-loped by the INDRA and FAZIA collaborations : the FAZIA array. The latter is the result of a ten-yearperiod of research and development, resulting in an array embedded its digital electronic under vacuum, withincreased identification performance (measurement of the Z charge and A mass up to Z = 25) compared tothe previous generations arrays.
