Experimental and theoretical studies of quasifission

Wakhle, Aditya

Description

The quest to synthesise superheavy elements is at the frontier of nuclear physics research. These elements can only be formed by the fusion of two heavy nuclei. The repulsive electrostatic energy between such nuclei is extremely large and more often than not, the system re-separates prematurely into two heavy fragments, intermediate in mass compared to the original nuclei. This non-equilibrium process is called quasifission. Only occasionally does fusion occur resulting in the formation of a...[Show more]
