Background: Near- and sub-barrier fusion of various Ca + Zr isotopic combinations have been widely investigated. A recent analysis of 40Ca+96Zr data has highlighted the importance of couplings to multiphonon excitations and to both neutron and proton transfer channels. Analogous studies of 40Ca+90Zr tend to exclude any role of transfer couplings. However, the lowest measured cross section for this system is rather high (840μb). A rather complete data set is available for 40Ca+94Zr, while no measurement of 40Ca+92Zr fusion has been performed in the past. Purpose: Our aim is to measure the full excitation function of 40Ca+92Zr near the barrier and to extend downward the existing data on 40Ca+90Zr, in order to estimate the transfer couplings that should be used in coupled-channels calculations of the fusion of these two systems and of 40Ca+94Zr. Methods: 40Ca beams from the XTU Tandem accelerator of INFN–Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro were used, bombarding thin metallic 90Zr (50μg/cm2) and 92ZrO2 targets (same thickness) enriched to 99.36% and 98.06% in masses 90 and 92, respectively. An electrostatic beam deflector allowed the detection of fusion evaporation residues (ER) at very forward angles, and angular distributions of ER were measured. Results: The excitation function of 40Ca+92Zr has been measured down to the level of ≃60μb. Coupled-channels (CC) calculations using a standard Woods-Saxon (WS) potential and following the line of a previous analysis of 40Ca+96Zr fusion data give a good account of the new data, as well as of the existing data for 40Ca+94Zr. The previous excitation function of 40Ca+90Zr has been extended down to 40μb. Conclusions: Transfer couplings play an important role in explaining the fusion data for 40Ca+92Zr and 40Ca+94Zr. The strength of the pair-transfer coupling is deduced by applying a simple recipe based on the value obtained for 40Ca+96Zr. The logarithmic slopes and the S factors for fusion are reproduced fairly well for all three systems by the CC calculations, and there are no indications of a fusion hindrance at the lowest energies. In contrast, the new data for 40Ca+90Zr indicate the onset of a fusion hindrance at the lowest energies.
