THE SPONTANEOUS AND INDUCED FISSION OF THE PLUTONIUM ISOTOPES
The main characteristics of the energy and mass distributions of the fragments emitted in the spontaneous fission of 236-Pu, 238-Pu, 240-Pu, 242-Pu and 244-Pu and in the thermal fission of 239-Pu and 241-Pu are discussed. The great influence of the neutron shell effects on these distributions is demonstrated and interpreted in terms of the scission point model. The results also indicate that fission seems to be a strongly damped process, above as well as below the fission barrier.
