Abstract: Nuclear fission is a process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into two or more smaller nuclei, which are called ¯ssion products. Fission can happen spontaneously, but also be triggered by the impact of neutrons. During this process, by-products are released that include free neutrons, photons, usually in the form of gamma radiation, and other nuclear fragments such as beta particles and alpha particles. The fission of heavy elements can release huge amounts of energy, both as gamma rays and as kinetic energy of the fragments.
