Fusion and fission induced by heavy ions

  • Yu. Ts. Oganessian
Session F Macroscopic Aspects of Heavy Ion Reactions
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 33)


Some problems associated with the mechanism of compound nucleus formation in reactions induced by ions with mass ≫ 40 amu are considered. Experiments to synthesize neutron-deficient nuclei with Z=100, 104 and 106 by bombarding Pb isotopes with 40-Ar, 50-Ti and 54-Cr ions are described. Some data on delayed fission of neutron-deficient Am isotopes in the Pb + Al reaction are given.

The properties of heavy nuclei are discussed in terms of the present-day fission theory. The possibilities of synthesizing elements with Z >106 are investigated.
