Cluster-fission, a new fission mode
Faculté des Sciences, 06108 Nice cedex 2, France
Accepted: 5 February 2002
Clusters heavier than those observed in the cluster-radioactivity of heavy nuclei can not only be formed in superheavy compound nuclei but also be immediately expelled, because the clusterization energy is very great. This process differs from cluster-radioactivity and constitutes a new type of fission reaction. Its reality is confirmed by recent experimental observations.
