Abstract

Subject to the assumption that sub-barrier fusion is described by an effective one-dimensional energy-independent local potential barrier, the Jeffreys-Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation for the fusion cross sections is inverted to determine this effective potential. Potential barriers, with their associated experimental errors, are presented for C13+C13 and Ca40+Ca40, and the assumption of a local effective potential is shown to be inadequate for Ni64+Ni64.
