Abstract
The binary decay of very light nuclear systems into the ground state exit c hannel has been investigated for light heavy-ion collisions at energies ran ging from the Coulomb barrier up to similar to 4 MeV per nucleon. A systema tic analysis of 14 reactions and up to 50 angular distributions allowed the extraction of the energy thresholds (E-ef) for the fission channel forming the final products at the ground state ("elastic fission"). A significant suppression of the contribution of statistical processes is observed when t he size of the system is reduced. This effect may be related to a relative increase of the fast and peripheral yields. [S0556-2813(99)03711-5].
