Abstract

The liquid drop model predicts a linear dependence between the logarithm of spontaneous fission half-lives and the parameter Z2/A. This linear dependence is obtained when assuming that barrier curvature is constant. We have found this linear dependence only in long-lived even-even isotopes with Z2/A less than 38.5, with the same 2Z-N values.
