Abstract
The fission fragments from spontaneous fission of $^{252}$Cf have been measured with the spectrometric and position--sensitive semiconductor pixel detector Medipix2. Fragments are identified by pattern recognition of clusters generated in the Medipix2 pixel matrix sensor upon heavy particle hit. From analysis of cluster area, the distribution of kinetic energy of fission fragments is obtained. Together with a novel USB readout interface, the Medipix2/USB system operates as active nuclear emulsion in single--quantum and on--line tracking mode.
