Measurement of the Effect of Large Deformation-Aligned Ground-State Spin on Fission Fragment Anisotropies

Butt, Rachel D; Dasgupta, Mahananda; Berriman, Annette; Mukherjee, A.; Morton, Clyde; Newton, John; Hinde, David


The effect on fission fragment anisotropies of the alignment of ground-state nuclear spin with the nuclear deformation axis has been investigated for the reactions 31P+ 176Lu and 29Si+ 178Hf, through measurements at a range of energies spanning the fusion barrier. Calculations which reproduce the anisotropies for the 29Si+ 178Hf reaction only reproduce the anisotropies for 31P+ 176Lu when the correlation of the seven units of ground-state spin of 176Lu with the nuclear deformation axis is...[Show more]
