12C + 12C Fusion Reactions and
Heavy-Ion Fusion Hindrance at Low Energies

Cheng Lie Jiang, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois
Physics Division Seminar
3:00 PM — 4:00 PM, Building 6008, Large Conference Room
Contact: Alfredo Galindo-Uribarri (, 865.574.6124


Resonances in 12C + 12C fusion have been discovered more than fifty years ago. But their nature has not yet been fully explained. A new understanding of the origin and consequences of 12C + 12C fusion resonances at deep sub-barrier energies will be discussed together with the newly discovered heavy-ion fusion hindrance at extremely low energies.
