Fission of [sup 233]U induced by thermal neutrons and with detectors for fission fragments and ternary particles covering large solid angles has been studied. Evidence has been found for events where two light charged particles are emitted in coincidence with fission fragments. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The minor actinide waste produced in nuclear power plants contains various Cm-isotopes, and transmutation scenarios require improved fission cross section data. The available thermal neutron induced fission cross section data for 243Cm, 246Cm and 248Cm are not very accurate, so new cross section...

    To estimate the main characteristics of neutrons emitted shortly before the scission of a fissioning nucleus, various experiments sensitive to the presence of these scission neutrons in thermal-neutron-induced fission of 235U and spontaneous fission of 252Cf were performed. The results of the...

    A series of experiments has been performed to measure the dependence on the fragment mass and total kinetic energy of the average number and energy of prompt neutrons emitted from 235U and 239Pu fission fragments in thermal neutron induced fission. The experiments were carried out using neutrons...

    P-odd and T-odd asymmetries in the emission of fragments and light particles have been investigated in ternary fission induced by polarized neutrons. P-odd asymmetries unambiguously point to a violation of parity in the fission process. By contrast, T-odd asymmetries do not necessarily imply a...

    Thermal-neutron-induced fission of 243Cm was studied at the Lohengrin mass separator. The light-mass peak of the fission-yield curve was investigated, and mass (from A=72 to A=120) and independent-product (for Z=28–37) yields were obtained. A comparison was made of the results obtained on...

    A method of analysis of fluctuation in the delayed neutron yield on the basis of the multimodal fission model was applied to the low-energy resolved resonances for Pu-239. The present calculation using recent data of the fluctuation of the mode branching ratios for the resolved resonances showed...
