The abundance of the minor actinides increases with burn-up; one example is the curium isotope, 244 Cm, as discussed in Chapter 5. Nuclear fission - Nuclear fission - Fission theory: Nuclear fission is a complex process that involves the rearrangement of hundreds of nucleons in a single nucleus to produce two separate nuclei. Spontaneous fission (SF) is a form of radioactive decay where an atom's nucleus splits into two smaller nuclei and generally one or more neutrons. 0000003098 00000 n Figure 5.

Starting from this dynamical theory, a semi-empirical formula of spontaneous fission half-lives of even-even nuclei is derived. Spontaneous fission is kind of a "catastrophic structural failure" of the nucleus; it does not usually happen even in fissile nuclides like 235 U, because there is a significant activation energy.  Fission is not a spontaneous process. 0000015387 00000 n Flerov and K.A.
