Abstract

Estimates are given for the cross section of producing pionic atoms of exotic nuclei in heavy-ion collisions. The production cross section for exotic nuclear fragments is determined by the abrasion-ablation model, while the number of pions and their momentum distributions are obtained from the fireball model. The radiative capture probability of the pion into the atomic orbits of the nuclear fragment is estimated and is found to be very small. Alternative capture mechanisms are suggested.
