Beta-delayed (EC/b+, b-) fission is a rare nuclear decay process in which the beta-decaying parent nuclide populates excited states in its daughter, which may then fission. The talk will review the results of two ISOLDE experiments performed by our collaboration* in 2011, in which beta-delayed fission of lightest Tl, At and Fr isotopes were investigated. In particular, beta-delayed fission of 202Fr was identified for the first time and a fission fragments mass distribution was measured. *The work was performed by RILIS-ISOLDE(CERN)-UWS,Paisley (UK)-IKS,KU Leuven (Belgium)-Comenius University, Bratislava (Slovakia)-OLL, University of Liverpool (UK)-JAEA, Tokai (Japan)-Gatchina(Russia) collaboration
