Reaction dynamics of weakly bound nuclei at near-barrier energies

Dasgupta, Mahananda; Gasques , Leandro; Luong, Huy; du Rietz, Rickard; Rafiei, Ramin; Hinde, David; Lin, Chengjian; Evers, Maurits; Diaz-Torres, Alexis


The above-barrier suppression of complete fusion in reactions with weakly bound stable nuclei displays a strong correlation with their breakup threshold. Simplistically, this observation suggests that suppression of complete fusion is due to the direct breakup of the weakly bound partner, prior to reaching the barrier. However, new measurements of breakup at energies below the fusion barrier show that breakup following transfer, rather than direct breakup, is the dominant mechanism. The...[Show more]
