Abstract The reactions of 215 MeV16O with12C,181Ta,208Pb and238U have been studied. Inclusive measurements for4He emission are given from each target, and for fission and1,2,3H from Ta, Pb and U. For H/He a high-energy, forward-peaked component is observed with characteristics similar to those reported by others. At backward angles a low-energy, nearly-isotropic component is also observed for4He that cannot be accounted for by emission from fully accelerated fission products. The spectral shapes for this evaporative component are compared with statistical model calculations, and information is obtained concerning the effective barriers to emission. For the reactions of16O with12C, complete fusion seems to be overwhelmed by incomplete fusion. Fission angular distributions and cross sections are also presented and discussed.
