    • Abstract

       

      This article gives an overview of the physics of the fission phenomenon. It provides a brief introduction to the various aspects of the fission process such as liquid drop model fission barriers, different stages of the fission process, fragment kinetic energy and mass distributions, nuclear shell effects on fission barriers, fragment angular distributions and rare fission modes.
