The method of optical model analysis of generalized elastic scattering angular distributions (GESA) has been applied to heavy ion scattering to derive fusion spin distributions. This method is used to reproduce the coupled channel fusion spin distributions. When applied to experimental data, particularly to the fissile systems like16O +232Th, the method gives large mean square spin values in agreement with “anomalous” values derived from experimental fission fragment anisotropies.
