Sub-barrier quasifission in heavy element formation reactions with deformed actinide target nuclei
Background: The formation of superheavy elements (SHEs) by fusion of two massive nuclei is severely inhibited by the competing quasifission process. Low excitation energies favor SHE survival against fusion-fission competition. In “cold” fusion with spherical target nuclei near 208Pb, SHE yields are largest at beam energies significantly below the average capture barrier. In “hot” fusion with statically deformed actinide nuclei, this is not the case. Here the elongated deformation-aligned...[Show more]
