Quasifission is an important process suppressing the fusion of two heavy nuclei in reactions used to create superheavy elements. Quasifission results in rapid separation of the dinuclear system initially formed at contact. Achieving reliable a priori prediction of quasifission probabilities is a very difficult problem. Through measurements with projectiles from C to Ni, the Australian National University's Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility and CUBE spectrometer have been used to map out mass-angle...[Show more]
