Abstract: An experiment searching for formation of super-deformed shape isomers in odd uranium isotopes following neutron capture is designed at the GELINA neutron source of IRMM. We focus on neutron energies around the so-called intermediate structure in the fission cross-section, where the coupling between compound states above the first and the second minimum is largest. The experimental arrangement is described. The results of a feasibility study on the population of the shape isomer in 235U, using a 234U target, together with the results from first run with a 238U target are presented.
