Abstract

This work describes an experimental study of the energetics of the fission of U238 performed with solid state detectors. The fissions were produced by fission-spectrum neutrons from a reactor. The procedure used for calibrating the detector response is described and the effects of some experimental uncertainties, such as pulse height defect and neutron emission, are discussed.
