Preliminary results of the experiment on search for neutron nuclei on a nuclear reactor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An experiment on search for neutron nuclei in the reaction of neutron-induced fission of 235U nuclei has been performed on a nuclear reactor. The hypothetical reaction 122 Te(xn, (x-k)n)122+kTe → (β- ) → 122+kI (x = k ≥ 10) has been investigated. The radiochemical method for selecting iodine isotopes from tellurium was used. The upper limit on the probability of formation of neutron clusters has been obtained: Pk ≤ 10-8 (fission)-1 for 11n clusters and Pk ≤ 10-9 (fission)-1 for 11n clusters.
