Abstract

Electromagnetic fission cross sections of a 120 MeV/nucleon U238 beam incident on five targets, Be9, Al27, Cunat, Agnat, and Unat, have been extracted from measurements of projectile velocity fission fragments. The nuclear interaction contributions to the experimentally observed cross sections were determined by extrapolation from the Be target data using a geometrical scaling model and by an empirical decomposition of the fission charge distributions. The results are compared to model calculations in which electric quadrupole excitations have been included.
