Evaluation of n + /sup 242/Pu reactions from 10 keV to 20 MeV. [Data compilation, cross sections, angular distributions]

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An evaluation of the n + /sup 242/Pu cross sections is presented for the neutron energy range of 10 keV to 20 MeV. The total fission and radiative capture cross sections are based upon experimental measurements of /sup 242/Pu. The remaining cross sections, together with the elastic and inelastic angular distributions to low lying states were calculated using various reaction models. An expression is presented for the energy dependence of the average number of neutrons produced per fission. The results were placed in ENDF/B-V format and combined with a recent evaluation of data below 10 keV by the Hanford Engineering ... continued below

The total fission and radiative capture cross sections are based upon experimental measurements of /sup 242/Pu. The remaining cross sections, together with the elastic and inelastic angular distributions to low lying states were calculated using various reaction models. An expression is presented for the energy dependence of the average number of neutrons produced per fission. The results were placed in ENDF/B-V format and combined with a recent evaluation of data below 10 keV by the Hanford Engineering Development Laboratory, so that a complete data set covering the energy range of 10/sup -5/ eV to 20 MeV is available. 41 references.
