Abstract We have prepared targets of many of the actinide elements, e.g., U, Pu, Am, Cm, Bk, Cf, Es, and Fm, for use in a comprehensive series of fission cross-section measurements. Other experiments requiring actinide targets have involved accelerator bombardments, e.g., irradiation of 253 Es and 257 Fm at the HILAC, and symmetry studies of neutron-induced fission, e.g., recent studies of 257 Fm and 258 Fm fission. The experimental techniques require the targets be uniformly deposited in a… CONTINUE READING
