The report is on the activities pursued during the first six months of the fourth year contract Fission Yield Determinations. During this period, test and calibration experiments were conducted with the electrostatic particle guide. Most of the present effort is being devoted to the extraction of fission mass yields from energy-time-of-flight coincidence experiments. Simple analyses of the raw data obtained thus far indicate that planned modifications and more sophisticated analysis techniques will allow the extraction of fission mass yields with good mass resolution. Modifications to the apparatus needed to study neutron-induced fission and to extract isotopic fission yields are now in the planning stage.
