Abstract

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.
