    • Abstract


      According to Order-Disorder Model (ODM), in the early stages of fission, the charges in a fissioning nucleus gets polarised into two impending parts along with corresponding most stable neutrons which are calculated from the minimum in isobaric mass parabola. This polarisation into two most stable configuration leaves a small number of neutrons as balance neutrons i.e.Nbal. The distribution of theseNbal for various polarisation modes, shows a very profound correlation with the yield distribution. Judging from this striking correlation between these two distributions, it can be predicted that the asymmetry in fission decreases gradually and ultimately disappear for nuclei havingZ ⋍ 102 but reappears again for the nuclei in super heavy region.
