Microscopic DC-TDHF study of heavy-ion potentials and fusion cross sections


We study heavy-ion fusion reactions at energies near the Coulomb barrier, in particular with neutron-rich radioactive ion beams. Dynamic microscopic calculations are carried out on a three-dimensional lattice using the Density-Constrained Time-Dependent Hartree-Fock (DC-TDHF) method. New results are presented for the 132^{132}Sn+40^{40}Ca system which are compared to 132^{132}Sn+48^{48}Ca studied earlier. Our theoretical fusion cross-sections agree surprisingly well with recent data measured at HRIBF. We also study the near- and sub-barrier fusion of 24,16^{24,16}O on 12^{12}C which is important to determine the composition and heating of the crust of accreting neutron stars.Comment: Talk given by .
