A precise fusion excitation function has been measured for the C12+Pb208 reaction at energies around the barrier, allowing the fusion barrier distribution to be extracted. The fusion cross sections at high energies differ significantly from existing fusion data. Coupled reaction channels calculations have been carried out with the code FRESCO. A bare potential previously claimed to uniquely describe a wide range of C12+Pb208 near-barrier reaction channels failed to reproduce the new fusion...[Show more]
