Fragmentation of radioactive beams for tailoring fission transients

Abstract : A novel experimental approach for studying dissipative effects in nuclear fission has been developed at GSI, Darmstadt. Fragmentation of radioactive heavy-ion beams is employed to prepare fissile nuclei in well-defined initial conditions and the fission-fragment nuclear charge distribution is used for investigating pre-saddle dynamics in detail. The undeniable manifestation of transient effects at high temperature is demonstrated and the influence of the initial deformation is clearly evidenced for the first time.
