A study of photofission on Ta-181 induced by bremsstrahlung with endpoint energies of 50 and 3500 MeV has been performed. The fission yields have been measured by using the induced-activity method in an off-line analysis. The total photofission yields for the tantalum target at 50 and 3500 MeV are found to be 5.4 +/- 1.1 mu b/equivalent quanta per second (eq.q) and 0.77 +/- 0.11 mb/eq.q, respectively, and the corresponding deduced fissilities are (0.23 +/- 0.05) x 10(-3) and (2.9 +/- 0.5) x 10(-3). Mass- and charge-yield distributions were derived from the data. The results were compared with the simulated results from the CRISP code for multimodal fission by the assuming symmetrical fission mode. (AU)
