12C + 12C Fusion Reactions and Heavy-Ion Fusion Hindrance at Low Energies

Cheng Lie Jiang, Argonne National Laboratory
Bldg. 6008 Large Conference Room

Resonances in 12C + 12C fusion have been discovered more than fifty years ago. But their nature has not yet been fully explained. A new understanding of the origin and consequences of 12C + 12C fusion resonances at deep sub-barrier energies will be discussed together with the newly discovered heavy-ion fusion hindrance at extremely low energies
