Abstract.

This work was performed to understand the structure of neutron-rich fission fragments around the 130 mass region. A thin 235U target was bombarded by a 14N beam with 10 MeV/A from the Separated Sector Cyclotron at the iThemba Laboratory for Accelerator Based Sciences, Cape Town, South Africa. The main goal was to detect and identify fission fragments and to obtain their mass distribution by using solar cell detectors in the AFRODITE (African Omnipurpose Detector for Innovative Techniques and Experiments) spectrometer. The X-rays emitted from fission fragments were detected by LEP (Low Energy Photon) detectors and γ-rays emitted from excited states of the fission fragments were detected by CLOVER detectors in the spectrometer.
