Simultaneous calculation of fission fragment charge and mass yields with the eFRLDM

Fall DNP 2021

Contributed presentation on 10/2021

We present model improvements to the macroscopic-microscopic approach to nuclear fission. We have magnified the resolution of the Lipkin-Nogami equations and strengthened the Strutinksy procedure, reducing spurious effects from the continuum. We further calculate scission configurations using particle number projection which affords the simultaneous calculation of both mass and charge yield distributions. We discuss our predicted yields in the actinide region.
