    • Abstract


      Using the recently proposed unified ternary fission model (UTFM), the tripartition of $^{236}\rm{U}$ isotope was studied for all possible fragmentations, in which the interacting potential barrier is taken as the sum of the Coulomb and proximity potentials with fragments in collinear configuration. The highest yield is obtained for the fragmentation $^{48}\rm{Ca}+^{58}\rm{Ti}+^{130}\rm{Sn}$ and next highest yield is found for $^{58}\rm{Cr}+^{46}\rm{Ar}+^{132}\rm{Sn}$,which stress the importance of doubly magic or near doubly magic nuclei in the tripartition of $^{236}\rm{U}$ isotope. The formation of $^{68}\rm{Ni}$ and $^{70}\rm{Ni}$ as the edge fragments linking the doubly magic nucleus $^{132}\rm{Sn}$ by the isotope of Si is in good agreement with experimental and theoretical studies, in the collinear cluster tripartition of $^{236}\rm{U}$ isotope which reveals the reliability of our model (UTFM) in ternary fission.
