Title: Modeling multi-nucleon transfer in symmetric collisions of massive nuclei

Abstract

Symmetric collisions of massive nuclei, such as U-238 + Cm-248, have been proposed as ways to make new n-rich heavy nuclei via multi-nucleon transfer (MNT) reactions. We have measured the yields of several projectile-like and target-like fragments from the reaction of 1360 MeV Hg-204 + Pt-198. We find that current models for this symmetric collision (GRAZING, DNS, ImQMD) significantly underestimate the yields of these transfer products, even for small transfers. (C) 2017 The Author(s).
