The fusion cross section of the B10 + N14 system has been measured at five energies covering the range E14N=86-180 MeV. Angular distributions of fusion and direct reaction components for products from Z=3 to Z=11 have been determined. Hauser-Feshbach calculations of the Z distributions, energies and angular distributions of the evaporation residues are presented and compared to the data. The fusion cross section decreases slowly with increasing energy and reaches a maximum angular momentum of about 21±1. The fusion cross section is discussed in terms of entrance channel models and compound nucleus formation and is compared to that of the C12 + C12 system. The experimental total reaction cross sections are in good agreement with optical model calculations with parameters deduced from elastic scattering. NUCLEAR REACTIONS N14 + B10, E14N=86 to 180 MeV, measured d2σd Ω dE for reaction products from Z=3 to 11. Extracted σfusion, σdirect, and σtotal.
