Fission barrier heights in the A ∼ 200 mass region
Statistical model analysis is carried out for 𝑝- and 𝛼-induced fission reactions using a consistent description for fission barrier and level density in A ∼ 200 mass region. A continuous damping of shell correction with excitation energy is considered. Extracted fission barriers agree well with the recent microscopic–macroscopic model. The shell corrections at the saddle point were found to be insignificant.
