Fission yields and lifetimes for muon induced fission in 235U and 238U

Academic Article


  • The absolute yields of prompt and delayed fission induced by negative muons stopping in 235U and 238U have been measured. A coincidence with muonic Kα X-rays was used to identify the muon stop in the target. The time distribution of fissions following the muon stopping were also obtained. © 1980.
