Structure effects in the reactions 9,10,11 Be+ 64 Zn at the Coulomb barrier Valentina Scuderi 10th International Spring Seminar on Nuclear Physics, New Quest in Nuclear Structure, Vietri sul Mare, May 21-25, 2010
Characteristics of the projectiles: Low break-up energy thresholds + long tail in density distribution Effects on direct reaction processes: Direct mechanisms, transfer and breakup, are favoured? Effects on fusion cross-section: Extended tails enhancement of sub-barrier fusion Reactions with neutron halo nuclei Elastic scattering: a fundamental tool to investigate halo structure influence of break-up channel nuclear potential between the colliding nuclei Which is the effect of the break-up couplings on other channels ?

Conclusions The collisions 9,10,11 Be + 64 Zn have been studied at E cm = 24.5 MeV by using post- accelerated 10,11 Be beams at REX-ISOLDE. Damping of elastic cross-section for the reaction induced by the 11 Be nucleus when compared with both 9 Be (S n = 1.67 MeV) and 10 Be (S n = 6.8 MeV). Surface term with large diffuseness needed to fit the 11 Be data. The reaction cross-section for 11 Be induced collision is much larger than for the other two Be isotopes σ Reac ( 11 Be) ~ 2 σ Reac ( 9,10 Be). Evidence for the presence of a large yield of transfer and/or breakup events in the 11 Be induced collision with a corresponding cross section σ tran+bu ~ 1 barn. These results show a strong effect on nuclear reaction mechanisms around the Coulomb barrier due to the halo structure and its weak binding
