    • Abstract


      This article focusses on the study of clan model parameters and their target dependence in light of void probability scaling for heavy (Ag and Br) and light (C, N and O) groups of target present in nuclear emulsion detector using 84Kr36 at ∼1 A GeV. The variation of scaled rapidity–gap (rap–gap) probability with single moment combination has been studied. We found that experimental points lie approximately on the negative binomial distribution (NBD) curve, indicating a scaling behaviour. The increase in average clan multiplicities ($\bar{N}$) for interactions with the pseudorapidity interval ($\Delta \eta$) was also observed. The values of $\bar{N}$ for AgBr targets are larger than those for C/N/O target and also average number of particles per clan ($\bar{n}_c$) increases with increase in pseudorapidity interval. We further observed that for a particular target, the average number of particles per clan ($\bar{n}_c$) increases with an increase in the size of projectile nucleus.
