Survey of experimentally determined neutron cross sections of the actinides

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Experimentally determined neutron cross section data for heavy actinides involved in the reactor production chains leading to /sup 238/Pu and /sup 252/Cf were examined. The neutron energy region below one kilovolt is emphasized because these cross sections and reactions are important for thermal and near- thermal reactors. Included with the data summaries are brief descriptions of pertinent measurements in progress or plarmed for the near future at United States and European laboratories. Additional measurements that are needed are suggested. Of most immediate interest are: sigma /sub ny/ for /sup 248/Cm below 1 keV, sigma /sub nf/ for /sup 245/Cm below ... continued below

Data were gathered for the survey through January 1973. (auth)
