Enhancement and Suppression of Fusion in Reactions Forming Heavy Nuclei

Hinde, David


A new framework for comparing fusion probabilities in reactions forming heavy elements is presented, that eliminates both theoretical and experimental uncertainties, and gives new insights into systematic behavior. This should help in predicting favorable reactions to form new heavy nuclei. The framework is firstly applied to the formation of isotopes of Thorium, where it is found that production yields follow a simple systematic behavior. The data consistently show that fusion is inhibited...[Show more]
