Status of measured neutron cross sections of transactinium isotopes for thermal reactors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Experimentally determined neutron cross sections, resonance parameters, and the average number of neutrons per fission for neutron-induced fission of actinide nuclides in the production chains associated with thermal and near- thermal reactors are summarized and compared with user requests for experimental data. The primary fertile and fissile isotopes $sup 232$Th, $sup 233$U, $sup 235$U, $sup 238$U, and $sup 239$Pu are excluded from this survey. Integral data, i.e., spectrum-averaged thermal cross sections and resonance integrals, are included, but the emphasis is placed on energy-dependent differential cross sections because of their general utility with any specified neutron energy spectrum. Included with the ... continued below

Included with the data summaries are an extensive survey of the literature through August 1975, brief descriptions of measurements known to be in progress or firmly planned for the immediate future, and recommendations for needed measurements.
