Abstract

It is explained that a large cross section and an increase with energy of diffractive production of nucleons (N*,...) (EN,EN*EA/A) in central collisions of light (A) and heavy (B) nuclei would signal the color-screening phenomenon and large fluctuations of size in the nucleon wave function. In particular, we find that for EA/A200 GeV and B1/4240, the probability of diffractive nucleon production should increase by a factor >5 as compared to that observed at BNL energies.
