Paper Abstract

The already existing forward proton detectors are considered in the context of the heavy ion collisions. The potential of such detectors in measuring the nuclear debris originating from de-excitation of colliding ions is presented. The apparatus geometric acceptance for different nuclei is studied. Also, the influence of the Fermi motion and experimental conditions is considered. A possibility of the reconstructing of collision the impact parameter from the measurement of the nuclear fragments is discussed.
