Using a Monte Carlo method we simulate an experiment that measures the mass, charge and kinetic energy of final fragments (after neutron emission) from the 235U(nth, f) reaction. As input data for the simulation, for primary fragments (before neutron emission), we assume (i) a distribution of mass and kinetic energy; (ii) an average number of emitted neutron as a decreasing linear function of kinetic energy and (iii) for each mass, a constant yield of charges as a function of kinetic energy…

Effects of neutron emission on fragment mass and kinetic energy distribution from thermal neutron-induced fission of 235U

The mass and kinetic energy distribution of nuclear fragments from thermal neutron‐induced fission of 235U(nth,f) have been studied using a Monte‐Carlo simulation. Besides reproducing the pronounced

Mass and kinetic energy distribution in cold fission of233U,235U and239Pu induced by thermal neutrons

The time-of-flight technique was used to measure the mass and kinetic energy distribution of fragments from fission of233U,235U and239Pu, induced by thermal neutrons at the Grenoble High Flux

Monte Carlo simulation of prompt neutron emission during acceleration in fission

The possibility of prompt neutron emission during acceleration of fission fragments (FFs) was examined by means of Monte Carlo method and statistical neutron emission model. Multimodal random

Kinetic energy distributions around symmetric thermal fission of U234 and U236

The kinetic energy distributions have been measured at LOHENGRIN for symmetric fission of U234 and U236. The pre-neutron emission values for the average total kinetic energy and its rms width have

Coulomb effects in low energy fission

The structures in the total kinetic energy (TKE) distributions in cold fission of234U and236U are interpreted in terms of the Coulomb interaction energy (C) between fragments at the scission point.

Monte Carlo Hauser-Feshbach predictions of prompt fission γ rays: Application to n th + 235 U, n th + 239 Pu, and 252 Cf (sf)

The prompt neutron and $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ emission from primary fission fragments are calculated for thermal neutron induced fission of ${}^{235}$U and ${}^{239}$Pu and for spontaneous fission of

Conceptual design of the early implementation of the NEutron Detector Array (NEDA) with AGATA

Abstract.The NEutron Detector Array (NEDA) project aims at the construction of a new high-efficiency compact neutron detector array to be coupled with large $ \gamma$-ray arrays such as AGATA. The
