We have studied the excitation functions of the reactions 244Pu(48Ca,xn). Maximum cross sections for the evaporation of 3–5 neutrons in the complete-fusion reaction 244Pu+48Ca were measured to be s3n=2 pb,s4n =5 pb, ands5n=1 pb. The decay properties of 3 n-evaporation product 289114, in the decay chains observed at low 48Ca energy coincide well with those previously observed in the 244Pu+48Ca and248Cm+48Ca reactions and assigned to288114. Two isotopes of element 114 and their descendant nuclei… Expand
