Fragment characteristics from fission of U-238 and U-234 induced by 6.5-9.0 MeV bremsstrahlung
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011

Fission of U-238 and U-234 induced by bremsstrahlung of 6.5-9.0 MeV endpoint energy has been investigated at the superconducting Darmstadt electron linear accelerator S-DALINAC. Using a twin Frisch grid ionization chamber, fission-fragment energy and mass distributions have been determined by means of the double kinetic-energy technique. Results on the fission-fragment characteristics from U-238(gamma, f) are in agreement with results from the literature. In addition fission-fragment mass and energy distributions from U-234(gamma, f) are presented for the first time in this energy region. An analysis of fission modes within the Brosa model has been performed. The relative yield of the S 1 mode was found to be (13 +/- 3)% in U-234 and (35 +/- 2)% in U-238.
