Abstract

Using an improved scission-point model, we describe the charge distribution of fission fragments produced in the electromagnetic-induced fission of even-even thorium isotopes. The transition from a symmetric fission mode to an asymmetric one is explained. A three-peaked charge distribution is predicted for several fissioning nuclei at low excitation energy.
