Abstract

Double TOF measurements were performed to obtain accurate kinetic energies of fission fragments produced in the proton-induced fission of 244Pu, 238U and 232Th. The presence of two families of the distances between the two complementary fragments at scission, Dsym and Dasym, is confirmed and their systematic variation from the pre-actinide to the medium actinide region is examined. Variations of the mean total kinetic energies of symmetric and asymmetric mass division products are also studied for a wide range of fissioning nuclides.
