Hammerton, K. M.; Morrissey, D. J.; Kohley, Z.; Wakhle, A.; Stiefel, K.; Hinde, David; Dasgupta, M.; Williams, E.; Carter, I. P.; Cook, K. J.; Jeong, D. Y.; Luong, D. H.; McNeil, S. D.; Palshetkar, C.; Rafferty, D. C.; Simenel, C.; Greene, J.


Superheavy elements are primarily formed through heavy ion fusion reactions. Formation of a fully equilibrated compound nucleus is a critical step in this reaction mechanism but can be hindered by orders of magnitude by quasifission, a process in which the dinuclear system breaks apart prior to full equilibration. To provide a complete description of heavy-ion fusion it is important to characterize the quasifission process. The interplay between the fusion-fission and quasifission reaction...[Show more]
