Abstract:

The fusion cross section and the barrier distribution for deformed spherical pair are calculated by the WKB approximation, and it is compared with the results of Wong's formula. We found that the latter is a very good approximation to the more complicated WKB one, starting from energy less by 5% than the lowest fusion barrier height occurring at orientation angle of the deformed target nucleus B=0.
