Fusion excitation functions for Sm144 + O16 and O17 have been measured to high precision. The extracted fusion barrier distributions show a double-peaked structure which is interpreted in terms of coupling to inelastic excitations of the target. The effect of the neutron stripping channel is evident in the reaction with O17. These barrier distributions show clearly the signatures of specific inelastic and transfer channels.
