Figure 1: (a) Schematic illustration of the reaction mechanism. After fusion occurs between the 50Ti beam and the 208Pb target nuclei, the compound system almost always fissions into lighter components. Only in about one out of every 100 million events is the end result 256Rf, which is produced when two neutrons evaporate. (b) Gamma-rays spectrum measured in the experiment.
