Fusion cross sections were measured for the systems 16O and 28Si+ 120Sn in order to understand the role of specific channels involved in sub-barrier fusion. Fusion cross sections were measured by direct detection of the evaporation residues. Extracted fusion barrier distributions were analyzed using the exact coupled-channel code CCFULL as well as the simplified code CCMOD. These calculations show that the observed fusion barrier distribution for the Si+Sn system is reproduced only if the rotational excitation in 28Si is taken into account.
