Recoil Range of Fission Fragments in Zirconium

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The recoil ranges of fission fragruents in zirconium were measured by irradiating small pieces of a Zircaloy-2 ribbon containing 492 ppm of homogeneously dispersed U/sup 235/. The samples were wrapped in aluminum foil during the irradiation to catch the fission fragments escaping from the surface of the Zircaloy-2. Average values of 10.1 and 8.15 microns were obtained for the recoil ranges of the median light and heavy fission fragments, respectively; these values compare quite well with values calculated from empirical equations.
