    The average spins at which final fragments are formed after fission following fusion of 19F with 197Au have been measured directly from spectroscopic studies of discrete γ-ray lines. The final fragment spins can be translated into average spins at which primary fragments are formed by adding changes due to statistical γ-ray emission and post-fission neutron emission. The average primary fragment spins show marked variations with fragment mass. Possible causes for the structure are discussed within the framework of the statistical scission model of heavy-ion induced fission. © 1987.
