Diaz-Torres, A., Hinde, D. J., Tostevin, J. A., Dasgupta, M. and Gasques, L. R. (2007) Relating Breakup and Incomplete Fusion of Weakly Bound Nuclei through a Classical Trajectory Model with Stochastic Breakup Physical Review Letters, 98 (152701).
A classical dynamical model that treats breakup stochastically is presented for low energy reactions of weakly bound nuclei. The three-dimensional model allows a consistent calculation of breakup, incomplete, and complete fusion cross sections. The model is assessed by comparing the breakup observables with continuum discretized coupled-channel quantum mechanical predictions, which are found to be in reasonable agreement. Through the model, it is demonstrated that the breakup probability of the projectile as a function of its distance from the target is of primary importance for understanding complete and incomplete fusion at energies near the Coulomb barrier.
