As an extension of previous work, we calculate the production cross section of heavy neutron-rich isotopes by employing the quantal diffusion description to 48Ca+238U collisions. The quantal diffusion is deduced from stochastic mean-field approach, and transport properties are determined in terms of time-dependent single-particle wave functions of the time-dependent Hartree-Fock theory. As a result, the approach allows for prediction of production cross sections without any adjustable parameters. The secondary cross sections by particle emission are calculated with the help of the statistical GEMINI++ code.
