TDHFB calculation for 20Ne(132 MeV) + 20Ne IN three dimensions
A TDHFB code using the time-dependent constant pairing strength equations of Belyaev and a zero range Skyrme interaction plus a finite range Yukawa interaction has been developed. A fast Fourier algorithm is used to obtain. the kinetic energy, and a sixth order predictor-corrector method is used to step the Schrödinger equation in time.The time dependence of pairing effects is studied. The deflection as a function of impact parameter and the energy loss function for the reaction 20Ne(132 MeV) + 20Ne are obtained. We predict a total fusion cross section of 1280 ± 100 mb compared to the observed value of 1230 ± 120 mb. Time dependent density contours are also presented to illustrate the fusion process.
