Background: Mass-asymmetric fission has been observed in low energy fission of 180Hg. Calculations predicted the persistence of asymmetric fission in this region even at excitation energies of 30–40 MeV. Purpose: To investigate fission mass distributions by populating different isotopes of Hg using heavy ion fusion reactions. Methods: Fission fragment mass-angle distributions have been measured for two reactions, 40Ca+142Nd and 13C+182W, populating 182Hg and 195Hg, respectively, using the...[Show more]
