Background: Fusion of heavy nuclei requires energy dissipation to trap the system inside the capture barrier. At high angular momentum, the centrifugal potential causes the barrier radius to reduce, which may lead to energy dissipation outside the barrier, affecting the fusion angular momentum distributions and thus the capture cross sections. Purpose: To investigate the sensitivity of fusion-fission cross sections as a probe of fusion dynamics at high angular momentum. Method: Fission of the...[Show more]
