Extensive systematization of theoretical and experimental nuclear densities and of optical potential strengths exctracted from heavy-ion elastic scattering data analyses at low and intermediate energies are presented.The energy-dependence of the nuclear potential is accounted for within a model based on the nonlocal nature of the interaction.The systematics indicate that the heavy-ion nuclear potential can be described in a simple global way through a double-folding shape,which basically depends only on the density of nucleons of the partners in the collision.The poissibility of extracting information about the nucleon-nucleon interaction from the heavy-ion potential is investigated.

    ABSTRACT: Fusion of very neutron rich nuclei may be important to determine the composition and heating of the crust of accreting neutron stars. We present an exploratory study of the effect of the neutron-gas environment on the structure of nuclei and the consequences for pycnonuclear fusion cross-sections in the neutron drip region. We studied the formation and properties of Oxygen and Calcium isotopes embedded in varying neutron-gas densities. We observe that the formed isotope is the drip-line nucleus for the given effective interaction. Increasing the neutron-gas density leads to the swelling of the nuclear density. We have used these densities to study the effect of this swelling on the fusion cross-sections using the S\~{a}o-Paulo potential. At high neutron-gas densities the cross-section is substantially increased but at lower densities the modification is minimal.

    ABSTRACT: In this work we present preliminary results of the continuum discretized coupled channel (CDCC) calculation for the 8B+12C system at energies near the Coulomb barrier. In the three-body cluster model of the proton halo projectile the São Paulo potential was used as a bare potential. We study the relative relevance of the Coulomb and nuclear breakups and its interference. The importance of each multipolarity of the interaction potential expansion is studied in detail. The polarization potentials are also generated and its energy dependence is studied. The effect of the continuum-continuum couplings for this light system is analyzed. The results for this system are compared with the previous ones for the 8B+58Ni system, as the charge of the 12C target is smaller.

    ABSTRACT: It is found that the inclusion of Gribov’s inelastic screening within the quasieikonal approach generalized to the case of nucleus-nucleus interactions leads to a significant decrease (∼18%) in the number of “wounded” nucleons and in the multiplicity of intranuclear collisions in central interactions between nuclei. This can significantly affect experimental estimates of the degree of “quenching” of jets and hydrodynamic calculations of the behavior of the quark-gluon plasma appearing in the indicated interactions.
