Within the framework of the dinuclear system model, the production of superheavy element Z = 117 in possible projectile–target combinations is analysed systematically. The calculated results show that the production cross sections are strongly dependent on the reaction systems. Optimal combinations, corresponding excitation energies and evaporation channels are proposed, such as the isotopes 248,249Bk in 48Ca induced reactions in 3n evaporation channels and the reactions 45Sc+246,248Cm in 3n…

Production cross sections of the superheavy nucleus 117 based on the dinuclear system model

Within the framework of the dinuclear system model, the capture of two colliding nuclei, and the formation and de-excitation process of a compound nucleus are described by using an empirical coupled

Survival and compound nucleus probability of super heavy element Z = 117

Abstract.As a part of a systematic study for predicting the most suitable projectile-target combinations for heavy-ion fusion experiments in the synthesis of 289-297Ts, we have calculated the

Entrance Channel Dependence of Production Cross Sections of Superheavy Nuclei in Cold Fusion Reactions

Production cross sections of superheavy nuclei Rf and Hs for asymmetric and nearly symmetric projectile-target combinations are systematically studied within the framework of the dinuclear system

Effects of Target Deformation on the Synthesis of Superheavy Nucleus 283 112

We investigate the effects of target deformation on the synthesis of superheavy nucleus 283112 in the framework of the extra-push model. Our results show that the cross sections of the 3n evaporation

Effects of Isospin Equilibrium on Cold Fusion of Superheavy Nuclei

The neutron flow model predicts that neutrons start to flow freely between the approaching nuclei 58Fe and 208Pb at s = 3 fm, a length in which the effective surfaces of these nuclei are 3 fm apart.

Experiment on the Synthesis of Element 113 in the Reaction 209Bi(70Zn,n)278113

The convincing candidate event of the isotope of the 113th element, 278 113, and its daughter nuclei, 274 111 and 270 Mt, were observed, for the first time, in the 209 Bi + 70 Zn reaction at a beam

Synthesis of superheavy nuclei: Nucleon collectivization as a mechanism for compound nucleus formation

A consistent systematic analysis of the synthesis of very heavy nuclei is performed within a ‘‘standard’’ theoretical approach without any adjustable parameters and additional simplification. Good

Fusion probability in heavy-ion collisions by a dinuclear-system model

In the dinuclear system formed in heavy-ion collisions the nucleon exchange between two touching nuclei is described by solving the Master Equation numerically since the driving force, which contains

Synthesis of nuclei of the superheavy element 114 in reactions induced by 48Ca

The stability of heavy nuclides, which tend to decay by α-emission and spontaneous fission, is determined by the structural properties of nuclear matter. Nuclear binding energies and lifetimes

Particle transfer and fusion cross-section for super-heavy nuclei in dinuclear system

Within the dinuclear system (DNS) conception, instead of solving the Fokker-Planck equation (FPE) analytically, the master equation is solved numerically to calculate the fusion probability of
