Synthesis of neutron-rich transuranic nuclei in fissile spallation targets

Preprint English OPEN
Mishustin, Igor; Malyshkin, Yury; Pshenichnov, Igor; Greiner, Walter;

A possibility of synthesizing neutron-reach super-heavy elements in spallation targets of Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS) is considered. A dedicated software called Nuclide Composition Dynamics (NuCoD) was developed to model the evolution of isotope composition in the ... View more
