We have for the first time studied the fusion-fission excitation functions for the systems 14,15C + 232Th at energies in the vicinity of the Coulomb barrier. At energies below the barrier, the fusion cross section of the halo nucleus 15C showed an enhancement by a factor of 2-5, while the fusion cross section for 14C shows a similar trend to that of 12,13C.
