Effects of Finite Ground-State Spin on Fission Fragment Angular Distributions Following Collisions with Spherical or Deformed Nuclei
The influence of the ground-state spin of fusing nuclei on the subsequent fission fragment angular distributions has been investigated through realistic quantum-mechanical calculations. The domain of applicability of an approximate formula is found for spherical nuclei. For deformed nuclei, a generalization of the standard transition state model expression for the fission fragment angular distribution is presented. This predicts dramatic changes in the shape and anisotropy of the distribution,...[Show more]
