Re: fisson process : what is the fission process for radioacive materials?
.
When the nucleus of an element disintgrates into two elements of lesser mass this is called fission. In the case of Uranium neutrons are released. Some basic web sites are:

Lise Meitner discovered Fission and received the Nobel prize for this discovery. More information on her can be found at:

The most common use of fission in nondestructive testing is as a source of neutrons for neutron radiography.
