The elastic scattering of on and fusion excitation functions for Ni and Ni have been measured at energies near the Coulomb barrier. Our results differ in several important respects from previous measurements on these systems. Coupled-channels calculations which explicitly allow for collective inelastic excitations and single-nucleon transfer reactions simultaneously reproduce the main features of the new elastic-scattering and fusion data.
