    • Abstract

       

      Excitation functions of reaction products formed in16O +66Zn and37Cl +45Sc systems, leading to the same compound nucleus,82Sr, were measured using recoil-catcher technique and off-line γ-ray spectrometry. The contribution of non-compound processes like transfer and incomplete fusion (ICF) reactions to the cross-sections of different evaporation residues were delineated by comparing the experimental data with the predictions of Monte Carlo simulation code PACE2. The results show that non-compound processes become a significant fraction of the total reaction cross-section in16O +66 systems in the beam energy range studied, while37Cl +45Sc gives mainly compound nucleus products. The mass asymmetry dependence of the fusion and non-compound cross-sections have been analysed in terms of the static fusion model and sum rule model
