We investigated the prompt dipole gamma-ray emission, related with entrance channel charge asymmetry effects, in the S-32+Mo-100 and S-36+Mo-96 fusion reactions at E-lab=196 MeV and 214.2 MeV, respectively, with the aim to probe its evolution with incident energy. These reactions populate, through entrance channels having different charge asymmetries, the Ce-132 compound nucleus at an excitation energy of 117 MeV with identical spin distribution. Fusion events were selected by detecting high-energy gamma rays in coincidence with evaporation residues. The center-of-mass differential gamma-ray multiplicity spectra of the considered reactions were found to be identical within the experimental uncertainties in the whole energy range. This result, associated with that reported for the same reaction pair at higher beam energy where a larger giant dipole resonance yield was evidenced for the more charge asymmetric system, implies an increasing trend of the prompt dipole gamma-ray emission with incident energy. Calculations based on a collective bremsstrahlung analysis of the reaction dynamics are presented and compared with the experimental findings.

Abstract

We investigated the prompt dipole gamma-ray emission, related with entrance channel charge asymmetry effects, in the S-32+Mo-100 and S-36+Mo-96 fusion reactions at E-lab=196 MeV and 214.2 MeV, respectively, with the aim to probe its evolution with incident energy. These reactions populate, through entrance channels having different charge asymmetries, the Ce-132 compound nucleus at an excitation energy of 117 MeV with identical spin distribution. Fusion events were selected by detecting high-energy gamma rays in coincidence with evaporation residues. The center-of-mass differential gamma-ray multiplicity spectra of the considered reactions were found to be identical within the experimental uncertainties in the whole energy range. This result, associated with that reported for the same reaction pair at higher beam energy where a larger giant dipole resonance yield was evidenced for the more charge asymmetric system, implies an increasing trend of the prompt dipole gamma-ray emission with incident energy. Calculations based on a collective bremsstrahlung analysis of the reaction dynamics are presented and compared with the experimental findings.
