Fusion-Fission is a new reaction mechanism to produce exotic radioactive beams

Abstract : Pioneering in-flight fission experiments at GSI intensively explored neutron-rich isotopes with Z=28-60. Elements with Z > 60 were weakly produced in these experiments. The alternative technique to produce these nuclei, fusion-fission reactions with heavy targets in normal kinematics, suffers from difficulties with fragment extraction from the target and their identification. In-flight fusion-fission could be a useful production method to enable a large number of experiments aimed to identify new neutron-rich isotopes and study their properties. In particular, the study of the beta decay properties of fission products and their lifetimes is of central importance to numerous applications in nuclear physics and related disciplines, such as astrophysics, particle physics and nuclear engineering. A fast analytical Fusion-Fission model has been developed in the LISE++ framework to estimate the expected yields in in-flight fusion-fission experiments.
