Title: Quasielastic channel of single-stage nuclear fission induced by 1-GeV protons

Abstract

Experimental indications that there exists single-stage fission of {sup 238}U and {sup 232}Th nuclei that is induced by a nearly transverse flux of intranuclear nucleons are obtained from an experiment that employs a two-arm time-of-flight spectrometer exposed to a beam of 1-GeV protons. A nearly transverse flux of mean multiplicity about 10 to 15 nucleons is initiated by a recoil nucleon of mean momentum about 240 MeV/c in the quasielastic scattering of an incident proton.
