## Abstract

A dependence of the isobaric ratio Y(^{3}H)/Y(^{3}He) on the N/Z ratio of the reconstructed quasiprojectile for the reaction of ^{28}Si beam with ^{112,124}Sn targets at two different projectile energies of 30 and 50 MeV/nucleon is presented. We demonstrate a linear dependence of the observable ln(Y(^{3}H)/Y(^{3}He)) on the N/Z ratio of the quasiprojectile and show the dependence of the slope on the reconstructed excitation energy of the quasiprojectile. We relate this slope dependence at a given excitation energy to the temperature of the fragmenting system. Using the model assumptions of the statistical multifragmentation model, a method of temperature determination is proposed. A caloric curve is constructed and compared to the result of the double isotope ratio method for the same set of the data and to the results of other studies.
