Insights into the Influence of Breakup on Fusion Through Reactions with Weakly Bound Stable Nuclei
Complete fusion of6Li,7Li, and9Be with targets of208Pb and209Bi are found to be suppressed by about 30% at energies above the fusion barrier. Sub-barrier breakup measurements for the9Be +natPb reaction show that prompt breakup of9Be occurs close to the nuclear surface, and with sufficient probability to explain the suppression of complete fusion. The suppression is predicted to be proportional to the charge of the target nucleus. A simple classical trajectory model which makes the distinction...[Show more]
