In this study we have explored 6Li + 7Li fusion evaporation reactions cross sections dependencies on both nuclear level density and various spin combination effects. The reaction cross section was calculated in the energy range of 0.1–16 MeV projectile of 6Li on the fixed target of 7Li. The excited compound nucleus (13C) can decay into various channels, and its decay rate in any given channel is proportional to the available phase space, i.e., the corresponding level density of it which is explained in the present study. In the present study, LISE++, PACE4, NRV and GEMINI codes were used to determine cross section of evaporation residues cross sections of 13C.
