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: We have performed two independent calculations, without any free parameter, to predict the near-barrier fusion cross section for the proton-halo 8B + 58Ni system, for which data were recently reported. Standard coupled channel calculations predict fusion cross sections smaller than the data, while CDCC calculations for the absorption cross section (fusion + transfer + inelastic cross sections) agree with the data above the barrier, although transfer cross sections are calculated to have non-negligible cross section at this energy regime. At sub-barrier energies, region where transfer cross sections are particularly important, the CDCC calculations overpredict the data. The fusion data of the 8B + 58Ni system fail to follow the systematics of other weakly bound nuclei and the UFF curve and do not agree with the fusion data of the 8B + 28Si system. We try to explain this anomalous behaviour.

    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.
