Fission is a unique tool to study nuclear properties. The SOFIA Collaboration takes advantage of the inverse kinematics technique to measure fission yields for a large range of systems, including exotic nuclei. Both fragments are fully identified in charge and mass, a unique feature. The use of Coulomb interaction as fission trigger results in a low excitation energy in the fissioning system, allowing to study the influence of nuclear structure on fission. Using samples of SOFIA results, this paper addresses some open questions about fission such as the evolution of elemental yields with mass and the transition between asymmetric and symmetric fission.
