What can we learn from the fission of super-heavy elements?

Abstract : Nuclear shell model calculations predict the existence of super-heavy elements (SHE) that are tentatively synthesized through heavy-ion collisions. A complete description of the reaction to synthesize super-heavy elements is necessary to bridge these predictions with the experimental results on the fission time and residue cross sections. In this contribution, we will present the constraints that can be given on the shell correction energy from experimental data and the developments that are needed for the dynamical models. We will especially focus on the fission time of heavy elements and on the role of the isomeric potential pockets.
