This work summarizes some results of a series of experiments aimed at the investigation of energy dependence of anisotropy of fission fragments (FFs) in (n, f) reactions for neutron energies from low to intermediate. Angular distributions of FFs from the neutron-induced fission of 239Pu, 237Np, and natPb have been measured in the energy range 1–200 MeV at the neutron TOF spectrometer GNEIS based on the spallation neutron source at 1 GeV proton synchrocyclotron of the Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute (Gatchina, Russia). The anisotropies of FFs deduced from the measured angular distributions are presented. In the neutron energy range above 20 MeV the results have been obtained for the first time in our works. The experimental data for FF anisotropy in 237Np(n, f) are compared with calculations based on "adapted" TALYS software.
