Abstract

An experiment on search for heavy neutron clusters in fission of 235U nuclei has been carried out on a nuclear reactor. The method of searching for neutron clusters is based on irradiation of tellurium dioxide and lead oxide targets in reactor channels near the active zone and far from it. The method of β-spectrometric analysis of irradiated targets was used to search for nuclei whose occurrence in the targets cannot be explained by other nuclear reactions, except for the reactions of original target nuclei with neutron clusters. The reactions of tellurium and lead nuclear fission by neutron clusters (nuclei) and direct capture of neutron clusters have been revealed.
