Title: Heavy ion fusion reactions and the nucleus-nucleus potential

Abstract

Several open questions on heavy-ion fusion reactions will be discussed by using a semi-classical model that incorporates well known properties of the interacting nuclei like single particle levels and surface vibrations. It will be shown that the behavior of the fusion excitation function at very low energies is sensitive to the actual shape of the ion-ion potential at distances shorter than the position of the Coulomb barrier and that the high energy hindrance to fusion may be reconciled by taking into account the flux that will remain in all binary reactions.
