A fast separation for antimony produced in heavy-ion induced fission
- 28 Downloads
Fission fragments from heavy ion induced fission were stopped in thin magnesium foils. A fast procedure based on evolution of stibine was developed to separate the antimony isotopes embedded in the foil. A separation system, and a glass pressure filtration system was constructed for this purpose. The chemical yield measured by three independent methods was 80–90%. The degree of decontamination from other fission products was >102. The whole separation took eight minutes.
