Fusion of the8Li+208Pb system at near-barrier energies studied via xn evaporation Conference Paper uri icon


  • The fusion excitation function for the radioactive projectile8Li on a208Pb target has been measured at energies near the Coulomb barrier. The results show that in the considered energy interval, the evaporation of four neutrons is the most relevant mechanism. However, at the highest energies used in the experiment, the 5n channel begins to appear. The preliminary experimental cross sections show a good agreement with the predictions of a simple evaporation calculation using the code PACE.
