Abstract or Summary
  • The nuclear reaction ¹⁰⁰Mo(¹²⁴Sn,xn)[superscript 224-x]U has been carried out at E[subscript cot] of 578 MeV and 634 MeV using the facilities and equipment at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in order to initiate the search for the inverse fission of uranium. Reference beams of ²³⁸U at 331 MeV and 365 MeV were also used to aid in the search for possible evaporation residues. A bismuth target was employed to attempt to obtain a background spectrum to more accurately determine the overall cross section, which was deterimined to be 0.2 mb at E[subscript cot] of 578MeV and 0.5 mb at E[subscript cot] of 634 MeV. A discussion of the experimental apparatus, techniques used to analyze the data, as well as the use of the bismuth target as a background is included.
