Sub-barrier fusion excitation for the system $^7$Li+$^{28}$SiAug 06 2008The sub-barrier fusion excitation functions are measured for the first time for the system $^7$Li +$^{28}$Si by the characteristic $\gamma$-ray method in the energy range $E_{lab}$= 7-11.5 MeV. The results show an enhancement, below the barrier, by about ... More
Influence of the nuclear matter equation of state on the r-mode instability using the finite-range simple effective interactionDec 20 2017The characteristic physical properties of rotating neutron stars under the r-mode oscillation are evaluated using the finite-range simple effective interaction. Emphasis is given on examining the influence of the stiffness of both the symmetric and asymmetric ... More
