Nuclear mass and charge distributions in the cold region of the spontaneous fission of 252Cf
The nuclide yield of the spontaneous fission of 252Cf has been determined in eight total kinetic energy steps of 2 MeV below the average line through the maximum reaction Q-values of the isobaric splits as a function of the light-fragment mass. The mass yield in this cold and near cold region showed essentially no odd-even effect in the mentioned energy range. Odd and even mass fragments are formed with the same frequency. This finding is clear evidence for the randomness of the neck-rupture process. Randomness is a condition for the quantitative success of the multi-channel random neck-rupture model.
