    • Abstract


      This paper summarizes the results of some of the recent fusion–fission experiments carried out at the National Array of Neutron Detectors (NAND) Phase-01 installed at the Pelletron+LINAC accelerator facility of Inter-University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), New Delhi. Pre-scission neutron multiplicity excitation functions are measured for the 213,215,217Fr, 210,212,214,216Rn and 206,210Po compound nuclei populated through the fusion of the 19F+194,196,198Pt, 16,18O+194,198Pt and 12C+194,198Pt systems, respectively. Pre-scission neutron yields from these reactions are compared with the extensive statistical model calculations to look for the effects due to the compound nucleus shell closure, 𝑁/𝑍 ratio of the compound nucleus, magnitude of the saddle-point shell corerction and fission time-scale.
