Abstract.

Relativistic effects can explain the energy shift of - 6 keV reported by Ramayya et al. for the \(\gamma \)-ray de-exciting the first 2 + state, at 3368.03 keV, of the 10Be cluster emitted together with the fragments 146Ba and 96Sr in the ternary fission of 252Cf; the calculated shift is equal to -6.14 (0.16) keV. An explanation is presented for the apparent absence of Doppler broadening. For the configurations 138Xe-104Zr-10Be and 136Te-106Mo-10Be, recently reported by Hamilton et al. , observable shifts of the 3367.43 keV \(\gamma \)-line are predicted.
