In bombardment of {sup 244}Pu with {sup 48}Ca , we observed a decay sequence consisting of an implanted heavy atom, three subsequent {alpha} decays, and a spontaneous fission (SF), all correlated in time and position. The measured {alpha} energies and corresponding time intervals were E{sub {alpha}}=9.71 thinspthinspMeV ({Delta}t=30.4 thinspthinsps), 8.67thinspthinspMeV ({Delta}t=15.4 thinspthinspmin), and 8.83thinspthinspMeV ({Delta}t=1.6 thinspthinspmin); for the SF ({Delta}t=16.5… Expand
