Fission-fragment properties have been calculated for thermal neutron-induced fission on a 239Pu target, using constrained Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov calculations with a finite-range effective interaction. A quantitative criterion based on the interaction energy between the nascent fragments is introduced to define the scission configurations. The validity of this criterion is benchmarked against experimental measurements of the kinetic energies and of multiplicities of neutrons emitted by the fragments.

    On the base of modified trajectory calculations the shift of angular distribution of α-particles accompanied the reaction 235U(n,f) induced by cold polarized neutrons is evaluated. It was supposed that angular distribution shift is caused by the rotation of nuclear system before scission. The...

    The minor actinide waste produced in nuclear power plants contains various Cm-isotopes, and transmutation scenarios require improved fission cross section data. The available thermal neutron induced fission cross section data for 243Cm, 246Cm and 248Cm are not very accurate, so new cross section...
