Abstract

Almost all isotopes discovered after the Second World War were produced using accelerators or nuclear reactors. The few isotopes (35) that were identified for the first time in spontaneous fission using \(^{252}\mathrm{Cf}\) and \(^{248}\mathrm{Cm}\) sources are described in the present chapter.
