Ternary particles of Z =1 to 4 emitted in spontaneous fission of 252Cf

Full Text:


This paper presents the results of ternary light charged particles from 252Cf spontenous fission source. The method DeltaE - E was applied to identify the particle by a position sensitive DeltaE - E telescope.The specific energy loss (DeltaE) was measured using the transmission type DeltaE detector (thicknesses of 150 μm ) ordered from the company Micron Semiconductors, while the residual energy (E) was measured by a Timepix detector with thicknesses of 600 μm . It was possible to measure partial-energy spectra of the various ternary particle types due to the thicknesses of Al foil (31 μm) and DeltaE detector (150 μm) placed before E detector. The energy spectrum of protons was qualitatively different from the spectra of the other particles since protons from Al(n,p) and Si (n,p) reactions could contribute to the spectra.
