Abstract: New results of the fission fragment mass and kinetic energy distributions of 238U(n,f) have been acquired in an experiment at the Neutron Science Centre - Weapons Neutron Research (LANSCE - WNR). The incident neutron energy range covered is up to about 100 MeV. In order to determine the pre-neutron mass distributions one has to correct for prompt neutron emission. As that information is not readily available, calculations within the Point-by-Point model and the GEF code have been performed and in a first analysis the experimental data have been corrected for up to 30 MeV of incident neutron energy. Good agreement was found to the only other experiment of Zöller et al. which was described in a thesis but is otherwise unpublished.
