Fragment properties from fission of actinide nuclei induced by 6–10 MeV bremsstrahlungI
Paper i proceeding, 2012

Experiments to investigate the photon-induced fission of actinide nuclei at excitation energies in the vicinity of the fission barrier are carried out at the superconducting Darmstadt linear electron accelerator S-DALINAC. A twin-Frisch-grid ionization chamber is used to deduce mass, total kinetic energy, and angular distributions of the fission fragments. First experiments on 238U and 234U have shown that the experimental setup provides excellent conditions for investigating low-energy bremsstrahlung induced fission. Further experiments on 234U and 232Th are currently in progress. In this contribution results from the first experiment on fission fragment mass and total kinetic energy distributions from 234,238U are presented along with preliminary data from an on-going investigation of angular distributions from 234U(γ, f).
