Title of program: ASYM Catalogue Id: AADD_v1_0 Nature of problem The program ASYM was written to assist in the design of a fission chamber for an experiment to measure delayed neutron spectra following fission of U-235. Fission takes place in a U-235 lined hemispherical fission chamber. Fission fragments emitted from the infinitely thick foil are trapped by helium gas in the chamber and are transferred to a counting area by a helium-jet system. To avoid a possible distortion in the spectra one would like fragments fo all masses to be stopped with equal probab ...
