Investigation of fission properties and evaporation residue measurement in the reactions using238U target nucleus
EPJ Web of Conferences
Fragment mass distributions for fission after full momentum transfer were measured in the reactions of 30 Si, 34,36 S, 31 P, 40 Ar + 238 U at bombarding energies around the Coulomb barrier. Mass distributions change significantly as a function of incident beam energy. The asymmetric fission probability increases at sub-barrier energy. The phenomenon is interpreted as an enhanced quasifission probability owing to orientation effects on fusion and/or quasifission. The evaporation residue (ER)
... on residue (ER) cross sections were measured in the reactions of 30 Si + 238 U and 34 S + 238 U to obtain information on fusion. In the latter reaction, significant suppression of fusion was implied. This suggests that fission events different from compound nucleus are included in the masssymmetric fragments. The results are supported by a model calculation based on a dynamical calculation using Langevin equation, in which the mass distribution for fusion-fission and quasifission fragments are separately determined.
