A characteristic feature of thermalized non-equilibrated matter is that, in spite of energy relaxation- equilibration, a phase memory of the way the many-body system was excited remains. As an example, we analyse data on a strong forward peaking of thermal proton yield in the Bi(, p) photonuclear reaction. A new analysis shows that the phase relaxation in highly-excited heavy nuclei can be eight orders of magnitude or even much longer than the energy relaxation. We argue that thermalized...[Show more]
