We present fission-barrier-height calculations for nuclei throughout the periodic table based on a realistic macroscopic-microscopic model. Compared to other calculations (i) we use a deformation space of a sufficiently high dimension, sampled densely enough to describe the relevant topography of the fission potential, (ii) we unambiguously find the physically relevant saddle points in this space, and (iii) we formulate our model so that we obtain continuity of the potential energy at the… CONTINUE READING
