The elastic scattering of S32 on Ni58,64 and fusion excitation functions for S32+58,64Ni and S34+64Ni 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.

APS and CERN Sign Open Access Agreement for SCOAP3

APS and CERN, the host organization of SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), have signed an agreement to make the high-energy physics (HEP) articles published in three leading APS journals open access beginning January 1, 2018. This agreement acts to support the publishing of open access content for wider benefit of the HEP community.
