Fission Yields of Minor Actinides at Low Energy Through Multi-nucleon Transfer Reactions of 238U on 12C
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2015
First preliminary results of fragments distribution as a function of the excitation energy for different fissioning systems from U to Cm and Cf-250 are presented. A new method based on inverse kinematics to study transfer-induced fission of minor actinides was carried out in GANIL in 2008, and again in 2011. In these experiments, a U-238 beam at 6.1 A MeV impinged on a carbon target to produce fissioning systems by multi-nucleon transfer reactions, resulting in the first experiments accessing the full identification of a collection of fissioning systems and their corresponding fission fragments distribution. The excitation energy is deduced from the detection of the recoil nucleus in an angular DE-E stripped silicon telescope, and the identification of the fragments is made possible by the VAMOS spectrometer.
