Zeptosecond dynamics of transfer-triggered breakup: mechanisms, timescales, and consequences for fusion

Cook, Kaitlin


Above-barrier complete fusion cross-sections for reactions with light, weakly-bound nuclei such as 6,7Li and 9Be are suppressed relative to expectations from theory and experiment. This has been interpreted to be a result of the weakly-bound nucleus breaking up into its cluster constituents, reducing the probability of complete charge capture. However, experiments to probe mechanisms of breakup in below-barrier reactions of 9Be and 6,7Li with high atomic...[Show more]
