We investigated theoretical methods to estimate the charge polarization of the ﬁssion fragments. The method is based on the microscopic mean-ﬁeld model with the nucleon degree of freedom, and is represented in the three-dimensional coordinate space for dealing with any nuclear deformation. We employed the Skyrme eﬀective interaction for the calculations and uranium-236 as a target nucleus. We reported static and dynamic methods in which the potential energy surface of the ﬁssioning nucleus concerning the quadrupole and octupole deformations are used. Although the static method deduced the charge polarization which indicates the nuclei with the magic number and the octupole deformation, the quantities are not consistent with the existing data library (Wahl’s systematics). The dynamic method with the iso-energy initial condition on the potential energy surface showed the ﬁnite charge polarization of light and heavy ﬁssion fragments which is consistent with the data library. Furthermore, it indicates that the charge polarization has energy dependence of the initial states of the dynamic method.
