The excitation energy spectrum of fission resonances has been measured with high energy resolution using the 235U(d,pf) reaction in order to study hyperdeformed (HD) rotational bands and HD nuclear shapes. The moments of inertia of the rotational bands and the energy of the ground state in the third minimum were determined. Another signature of these highly deformed states, their enhanced a decay, was also observed. By studying cold or compact fission in the 232Th(n,f) reaction around HD resonances, we obtained data for heavy clustering.
