Fusion cross sections were measured for the C12 + N15 system at two C12 bombarding energies, 98 and 117 MeV. The extracted fusion cross sections are 946 ± 74 mb for E(C12)=98 MeV and 889 ± 89 mb for E(C12)=117 MeV. The critical angular momenta for fusion deduced from the cross section measurements equal, within 1, the values deduced from N14 + C13 and B10 + O17 at the same excitation energies, thus indicating a compound nucleus limitation for fusion. NUCLEAR REACTIONS C12 + N15, E(C12)=98 and 117 MeV; gas cell target; measured d2σdΩdE for reaction products with Z=7 to 12. Extracted σfus.
