Manganese bath systematic effects in measurements of nu-bar and eta

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Measurements using the manganese bath technique are central to the discrepancy that has existed between measured values of $nu$-bar for $sup 252$Cf. Manganese bath measurements of $nu$-bar belong to the lower group of values, while the eta measurements are consistent with the higher $nu$-bar values. A three-part study was performed to see if the discrepancy could be explained by differences in manganese bath techniques: (1) A $sup 252$Cf source previously calibrated by De Volpi was calibrated in the MTR manganese bath; (2) The recommendations made by De Volpi for altering the MTR eta values were carefully considered; and (3) The ... continued below

The study produced insignificant changes in the eta values. (6 tables) (auth)
