    The 10B(p,α)7Be reaction is the main responsible for 10B destruction in stellar interior. In such environments the process takes places mainly through a resonant state of the compound 11C nucleus. The 10B(p,α)7Be reaction has been studied by means of the Trojan Horse Method using the...

    Complete fusion reactions (xn-channels) using actinide targets are observed for values of the effective fissilities x eff ∼ 0.80 in the sub-pb range of production cross sections. The elements produced at this limit are Z = 108–112. Beyond complete fusion, heavier elements might still...

    The strong influence of the electron dynamics provides the possibility of controlling the expansion of laser-produced plasmas by appropriately shaping the laser pulse. A simple irradiation scheme is proposed to tailor the explosion of large deuterium clusters, inducing the formation of shock...
