Formation and dynamics of fission fragments

Simenel, Cedric; Umar, A S


Although the overall time scale for nuclear fission is long, suggesting a slow process, rapid shape evolution occurs in its later stages near scission. Theoretical prediction of the fission fragments and their characteristics are often based on the assumption that the internal degrees of freedom are equilibrated along the fission path. However, this adiabatic approximation may break down near scission. This is studied for the symmetric fission of 258,264Fm. The nonadiabatic evolution is...[Show more]
