Average recoil ranges have been measured for six fission products formed by reactions of 23-MeV ${\mathrm{H}}^{2}$ with ${\mathrm{U}}^{238}$. The ranges of products from near-symmetric fission (${\mathrm{Cd}}^{115}$ and ${\mathrm{Ag}}^{111}$) are longer than for neutron fission of ${\mathrm{U}}^{235}$, while the ranges of asymmetric products (${\mathrm{I}}^{131}$, ${\mathrm{Ba}}^{140}$, ${\mathrm{Mo}}^{99}$, and ${\mathrm{Sr}}^{89}$) are shorter. The kinetic-energy deficit for near-symmetry… CONTINUE READING
