In reactions between very heavy systems, shell effects are expected to be responsible for a three-body decay not yet observed. Shell and clustering effects affect mass and charge distributions of fragments from binary reactions at low energy. Using this concept, we have carried out an experiment on the system ${}^{238}U + {}^{238}U$ at GANIL. By using a Micro Channel Plate based 2-arm TOF spectrometer, we have measured velocity and time-of-flight distributions of binary reaction fragments.
