Transient effects in fission

  • To observe transient effects…

  • Small deformation and high E*

  • Appropriate observables

Evolution of the probability distribution

t = 0 s

t = 1·10-21 s

t = 3·10-21 s

Transient time τf(β, A, Z, T)

  • Small shape distortion

  • Low angular momentum < 20 ħ

  • High intrinsic excitation energies E* ~ ∆A

  • Inverse Kinematics

Fusion-fission reactions

Peripheral heavy-ion collisions at relativistic energies

Evidence for transient effects in fission and importance for nuclide production

The value of β depends on the description for f(t)

Total fission cross sections are not sensitive to the shape of f(t)

  • Conclusions

  • Experimental observation of transient effects

  • All observables described by a constant value of

  • Transient effects in fission strongly influence nuclide production

  • Very realistic analytical approximation for f (t)
