Three-dimensional time-dependent Hartree-Fock calculations of 16O + 16O and 40Ca + 40Ca fusion cross sections


Three-dimensional time-dependent Hartree-Fock calculations for the 16O + 16O and 40Ca + 40Ca fusion excitation functions are presented. Results for the former system are in good agreement with experiment for Elab≤120 MeV and indicate a dynamical lower angular momentum limit to fusion for Elab≥54 MeV. Results for 40Ca + 40Ca are compared with previous two-dimensional calculations. The low-energy fusion cross sections obtained for this system demonstrate the sensitivity of time-dependent Hartree-Fock calculations to the effective interaction used.

We are grateful to the experimental groups at Orsay and the Neils Bohr Institute for encouraging these calculations and providing their data. M. Stillerman was helpful in the early stages of code development and the computational assistance furnished by C. Verneyre at Saclay and B.S. Nilsson at the Niels Bohr Institute has been essential to this work. Supported in part by the National Science Foundation (PHY76-83685) at Caltech. [S.K. was an] Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellow.
