Abstract

Ternary fission of 252Cf was studied at Gammasphere with using ΔE×E particle telescopes. The abundance ratio of 10Be LCP’s emitted in the excited 2+ state (E*=3368 keV) and in the ground state was found to be N(2+)/N(0+)=0.160±0.025. No evidence was found for the 3368 keV γ rays emitted from a triple molecular state. For the first time charge distributions were obtained for fission fragments emitted with helium, beryllium and carbon LCP’s.
