Fusion near the coulomb barrier: A semiclassical view, R. Gupta¹, S. S. Malik¹ and A. K. Jain², [1] Department of Physics, G.N.D. University, Amritsar-143005, India, [2] Department of Physics, I.I.T. Roorkee, Roorkee-247667, India − Using the asymmetric two-center shell model potential in parameterized form, the dynamical solution for the radial and the mass asymmetry coordinates are obtained analytically for the fusion process near the Coulomb barrier.  Our semiclassical quantization results for the radial degree of freedom fixes the maximum excitation energy carried by the compound nucleus and agrees reasonably well with the observed value.  The shell effects of the colliding partners play an important role in deciding the incident energy for a reaction to take place.  Our results show the nucleus Z=122, A=300 as a doubly magic.  Our calculations further emphasize that the doubly magic reaction partners prompt the phenomenon of large mass transfer even at low excitation energy.
