NAME

bf - Returns the fission barrier

SYNOPSIS

#include <nuclib.h>

double bf_tf(int Z, int A, int J);

double ushell(int Z, int A);

Link with -lnuclib.

DESCRIPTION

The bf_tf() function returns the Thomas-Fermi fission barrier. The ushell() function returns the shell correction term, which is taken as the microscopic energy correction within the FRDM.

Z

Atomic number of compound nucleus

A

Mass number of compound nucleus

J

Angular momentum of compound nucleus in units of h-bar.

RETURN VALUE

The function bf_tf() returns the value described in units of MeV. If J>0, the barrier is scaled with the FRDM barrier (Sierk). The function ushell() returns the value described in units of MeV.
