Abstract  

The alpha-decay constant to fission cross section ratio for epi-cadmium neutron induced fission of 237Np, 241Am have been measured using solid state nuclear track detectors (SSNTDs). The measured values were (0.63±0.14).109 s-1.cm-2, (2.31±0.46).1012 s-1.cm-2 for 237Np and 241Am, respectively. The alpha to spontaneous fission branching ratio for 243Am was also measured to be (2.66±0.50).1010 using SSNTDs. These ratios are useful as signatures for the trace level identification of these actinides.
