In order to investigate the applicability of the Cascade-Exciton model (CEM) of nuclear reactions to fission cross sections and hoping to learn more about intermediate-energy fission, the authors use an extended version of the CEM, as realized in the code CEM95 to perform a detailed analysis of proton- and neutron-induced fission cross sections of {sup 209}Bi and {sup 208}Pb nuclei and of the linear momentum transfer to the fissioning nuclei in the 45--500 meV energy range. 
Nucleon-Induced Fission Cross Sections of Heavy Nuclei in the Intermediate Energy Region
Fission is the most important nuclear reaction for society at large today due to its use in energy production. However, this has raised the problem of how to treat the long-lived radioactive waste
Complex particle and light fragment emission in the cascade-excitation model of nuclear reactions
It is shown that merging CEM2k with GEM2 allows us to describe many fission and fragmentation reactions in addition to the spallation reactions which are already relatively well described.
Extension of the CEM2k and LAQGSM Codes to Describe Photo-Nuclear Reactions
The improved Cascade-Exciton Model (CEM) code CEM2k+GEM2 and the Los Alamos version of the Quark-Gluon String Model code LAQGSM are extended to describe photonuclear reactions. First, we incorporate


Fission of pre-actinide nuclei. The (p,f) reaction in the proton energy region 24--30 MeV
We have used the Alma Ata isochronous cyclotron to measure the integrated and differential cross sections for fission by protons of energy 24--30 MeV for 15 target nuclei in the region W--Bi. The
Probability of fission by particles of intermediate energy
The cascade-evaporative model of nuclear reactions and the liquid-drop model of fission are used to analyze the experimental dependence of the fissility on the mass of the target nucleus for stopped
Sensitivity of the evaporation-residue cross sections of highly-fissile and neutron-deficient nuclei
The evaporation-residue cross sections are extremely sensitive to the fission parameters, the level densities above and below the critical energy, and the transmission coefficient of the
Cross sections for neutron fission of Pb and Bi
We report measurements of the cross sections for fission of Pb and Bi by neutrons with energy 18--23 MeV. The Bi fission cross sections lie in the nanobarn region, and for Pb we obtain only upper
Relative and absolute neutron-induced fission cross sections of 208Pb, 209Bi, and 238U in the intermediate energy region.
Measurements of neutron-induced fission cross sections for Pb, Bi, and U have been performed in the 70-160 MeV energy region at the neutron beam facility at the The Svedberg Laboratory in Uppsala using the {sup 7}Li({ital p},{ital n}) reaction as neutron source.
Fissility of preactinides in charged-particle induced reactions
The main results of investigations of the integrated and differential cross sections of fission by light charged particles in the region of nuclear masses 170< or approx. =A< or approx. =215 are
Observation of the effect of central collisions leading to formation of a compound nucleus in interaction of 200-MeV protons with nuclei
Fission of nuclei in the region from uranium to ytterbium by protons in the energy range 70--200 MeV has been studied. The parallel component of the transport velocity (momentum) of the fissioning
