Subbarrier-Fusion and Elastic-Scattering Cross-Sections Calculated on the Basis of the Nucleus-Nucleus Potential in the Framework of the Modified Thomas–Fermi Method
Keywords:nucleus-nucleus interaction potential, modified Thomas–Fermi method, nucleon density distribution, cross-section, subbarrier fusion, elastic scattering
The nucleon density distributions and the nucleus-nucleus interaction potentials have been calculated for the 16O + 208Pb and 12C + 208Pb reactions using the modified Thomas–Fermi method, in which all terms up to h2-ones in the quasiclassical series expansion of the kinetic energy are taken into account. Skyrme forces depending on the nucleon density are used as the nucleon-nucleon interaction. On the basis of the obtained potentials, the cross-sections of subbarrier fusion and elastic scattering are calculated and agree well with the latest experimental data.
