Fusion process studied with a preequilibrium giant dipole resonance in time-dependent Hartree-Fock theory

Simenel, Cedric; Chomaz, Ph.; de France, G.


The equilibration of macroscopic degrees of freedom during the fusion of heavy nuclei, such as the charge and the shape, are studied in the time-dependent Hartree-Fock theory. The preequilibrium giant dipole resonance (GDR) is used to probe the fusion path. It is shown that such an isovector collective state is excited in N/Z asymmetric fusion and to a lesser extent in mass asymmetric systems. The characteristics of this GDR, such as its deformation, rotation, and vibration, are governed by the...[Show more]
