Session III. New Aspects of Deep Inelastic Collisions
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 117)


Three examples of fusion-fission type collisions on medium-.mass nuclei are investigated whether the fragment properties are consistent with fission from equilibrated compound nuclei. Only in a very narrow band of angular momenta the data fulfill the necessary criteria for this process. Continuous evolutions of this mechanism into fusion fission and into a deep-inelastic process and particle emission prior to fusion have been observed. Based on the widths of the fragment-mass distributions of a great variety of data, a further criterion for the compound-nucleus-fission process is tentatively proposed.
