Influence of the impact parameter on the heavy-ion fusion process

  • R. Fonte
  • A. Insolia


A simple interpretation of the existence of a l-window in complete fusion reactions between heavy ions is suggested. The dependence of the calculated impact parameters leading to fusion vs. Vrel/C exhibits strong analogies with the findings in the collision of two water droplets.
