Antipairing effects in the collective nuclear motion and their relevance to the saddle to scission descent in fission
The dependence of the pairing correlation upon collective velocity is studied in terms of the classical equations of motion. A decrease in pairing with increasing collective velocity similar to the Coriolis antipairing effect, is predicted. The consequences for nuclear viscosity and for the saddle-to-scission descent are discussed.It is a pleasure to acknowledge many fruitful discussions with the Drs. Z. Fraenkel, R. Babinet and J.R. Nix.
