ABSTRACT

The fusion reactions 48Ca + 154Sm and 16O + 186W leading to the same compound nucleus 202Pb are studied within the framework of an improved isospin dependent quantum molecular dynamics model. The entrance channel mass asymmetry dependence of compound nucleus formation is found by analyzing the shell correction energies, Coulomb barriers and fusion cross sections. The calculated fusion cross sections agree quantitatively with the experimental data. We conclude that the compound nucleus formation is favorable for the system with larger mass asymmetry.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate the interaction between dark energy and dark matter using a phenomenological model with an interaction proportional to the dark energy density and two physically motivated models, interacting holographic dark energy and mass varying neutrino dark energy. Constraints on the interaction parameters are obtained using observational data including the gold type Ia supernovae set, the cosmic microwave background (CMB) shift parameter from the 3-yr Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, the baryon acoustic oscillation parameter A from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the time-dependent observables of the lookback time to high-redshift galactic clusters. We find that the available data can be satisfied reasonably well for a wide range of parameters in the models studied and that the CMB parameter appears to have the most discriminating power between the models.

    ABSTRACT: Based on the improved isospin dependent molecular dynamics model in which the shell correction energy of the system is calculated by using deformed two-center shell model and the surface energy of the system is improved by introducing a switch function that combines the surface energies of projectile and target with the one of the compound nucleus. The effects of the shell correction energy on synthesis of superheavy nuclei and the fusion cross sections in asymmetric and nearly symmetric reaction systems leading to the same compound nuclei 62Zn, 76Kr, and 202Pb are studied. The entrance channel mass asymmetry dependence of compound nucleus formation is found by analyzing the shell correction energies, Coulomb barriers and fusion cross sections. The experimental data are described quantitatively by the present model. It is found that the compound nucleus formation is favorable for the systems with larger mass asymmetry.

    ABSTRACT: The neutron-rich fusion reactions are investigated systematically using the improved isospin dependent quantum molecular dynamics model. By studying the systematic dependence of fusion barrier on neuron excess, we find the enhancement of the fusion cross sections for neutron-rich nuclear reactions that give the lowered static Coulomb barriers. The calculated fusion cross sections agree quantitatively with the experimental data. We further discuss the mechanism of the fusion enhancement of the cross sections for neutron-rich nuclear reactions by analyzing the dynamical lowering of the Coulomb barrier that is attributed to the enhancement of the N/Z ratio at the neck region.
