Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Complete fusion cross sections have been measured for the systems 12C and 16O + 28,29,30Si in the energy ranges 20 MeV≤E12C49 MeV and 21 MeV ≤ E16O≤ 61MeV. Weak structure is observed in the 12C + 28Si excitation function while the remaining five systems exhibit an energy dependence which is consistent with smooth behavior. Maximum fusion cross sections for 12C + 28Si and 16O + 28Si are measured to be ≈ 1000 mb while those for 29,30Si peak at ≈ 1200 mb. Data have been analyzed in terms of the Bass model and the model of Glas and Mosel.
