Three-dimensional time-dependent Hartree-Fock calculations for the O16 + O16 and Ca40 + Ca40 fusion excitation functions are presented. Results for the former system are in good agreement with experiment for Elab120 MeV and indicate a dynamical lower angular momentum limit to fusion for Elab54 MeV. Results for Ca40 + Ca40 are compared with previous two-dimensional calculations. The low-energy fusion cross sections obtained for this system demonstrate the sensitivity of time-dependent Hartree-Fock calculations to the effective interaction used. NUCLEAR REACTIONS O16(O16,x) and Ca40(Ca40,x) calculated fus(E) in time-dependent Hartree-Fock approximation.
