Röpke, G.; Blaschke, D.; Ivanov, Yu. B.; Karpenko, Iu.; Rogachevsky, O. V.; Wolter, H. H. (2018): Medium Effects on Freeze-Out of Light Clusters at NICA Energies. In: Physics of Particles and Nuclei Letters, Vol. 15, No. 3: pp. 225-229

We estimate the chemical freeze-out of light nuclear clusters for NICA energies of above 2 A GeV. On the one hand we use results from the low energy domain of about 35 A MeV, where medium effects have been shown to be important to explain experimental results. On the high energy side of LHC energies the statistical model without medium effects has provided results for the chemical freeze-out. The two approaches extrapolated to NICA energies show a discrepancy that can be attributed to medium effects and that for the deuteron/proton ratio amounts to a factor of about three. These findings underline the importance of a detailed investigation of light cluster production at NICA energies.
