Velocities of Fragments from Fission of U²³³, U²³⁵ and Pu²³⁹

One of 4,228 reports in the series: Atomic Energy Commission Reports available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The following report analyzes the velocity distribution of fragments from slow neutron induced fission that have been measured by a time-of-flight method. Data is compared with data from fission fragments stopped in ionization chambers filled with argon and carbon dioxide, and these velocity data indicate that the kinetic energies of the fragments exceed those reported by ionization chamber measurements.

Physical Description

[16] p. : ill. ; 28 cm.
