    • Abstract

       

      Experiments with heavy ions at moderate energies show the importance of deformation in heavy ion collisions. A deformation model which takes deformation dynamically into account is developed. Having described fusion and deep inelastic collision for a very heavy system (Xe + Bi) and a medium heavy system (Ar + Th) at various energies successfully, we turn to some comparatively lighter heavy ions where fusion is the most dominant feature. Fusion cross-sections for six pairs of lighter systems (35Cl +116Sn,58Ni+62Ni,35Cl+62Ni,32S+24Mg,24Mg+24Mg and12C+27Al) have been obtained using our deformation model which agree well with experiment. The two-slope-behaviour of fusion excitation function which is an important feature of light ion fusion systematics is also obtained, in our model calculations for all the systems studied.
