Title: Emission of alpha particles during the spontaneous fission of {sup 244}Pu

Abstract

We have measured the light charged particle (LCP) emission probabililty for the spontaneous fission of {sup 244}Pu. For the LCP emission to binary fission probability ratio a value of (2.96{plus_minus}0.31){times}10{sup {minus}3} was found. This result is in agreement with the previously observed trends concerning the LCP emission probability.
