Binary Fission fragmentation of 466,476184X



S. Subramanian, C. Karthikraj, and S. Selvaraj


Based on the statistical theory of fission, we discuss here the binary fission fragmentation of these giant nuclear systems formed in low energy U + U collisions. Here, the mass and charge distribution of fragments from the binary fission of these systems are studied at T = 1 and 2 MeV. From our results at T = 1 MeV, fragments in the near-asymmetric and near-symmetric regions pronounce higher yield values. However, at T = 2 MeV, our results are grossly different. Furthermore, the binary fragmentation with the largest yield consists of at least one closed shell nucleus. Different possible binary fission modes are presented to look for U + Ugiant nuclear systems.
