Dynamics of breakup and quasifission : mechanisms inhibiting fusion

Rafiei, Ramin


The study of reaction dynamics involving weakly bound stable and halo nuclei, is currently one of the most intriguing and challenging problems in nuclear physics. The influence of weakly bound nuclei on the fusion process is not solely due to coupling to collective degrees of freedom, as with well bound nuclei, but requires consideration of the strong couplings to the low lying unbound states, present due to the small binding energy of these nuclei. The breakup process, and its effect on the...[Show more]
