Super-asymmetric fission has received increased interest in the past years due to perspective of producing exotic neutron rich nuclei. They might be important for the production of super-heavy elements as maybe shown by the possible discovery of element 118 and 116 at Berkeley.

In the light actinide fission around Pb and At, although mainly symmetrically fissioning, an additional asymmetric component has been observed, which was interpreted as super-asymmetric fission , too. .
