Ternary fission of 466, 476     184X formed in U + U collisions

Regular Article - Theoretical Physics

Abstract.

Recently, the very rare process of nuclear ternary fission has been of great interest in nuclear dynamics. Based on the statistical theory of fission, we discuss here the ternary-fission mass distribution of 466, 476      184X formed in low-energy U + U collisions for different heavy third fragments at \( T = 1\) and 2MeV. The expected ternary configurations 208 Pb + 208 Pb + 50 Ca and 204 Hg + 204 Hg + 58 Cr are obtained from the ternary fission of 466 184X at \( T = 2\) MeV. In addition, for both the systems, various possible ternary modes are listed for different heavy third fragments. Our results clearly indicate that the favored ternary configurations have either proton and/or neutron shell closure nucleus as one of their partners.
