EVALUATION OF TUNGSTEN ISOTOPES IN THE FAST NEUTRON RANGE INCLUDING CROSS-SECTION COVARIANCE ESTIMATION.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

New evaluations for the tungsten isotopes {sup 180,182,183,184,186}W in the neutron energy range up to 60 MeV were produced. In the resonance range only minor adjustments to the resonance parameters were made due to a lack of adequate experimental data. Evaluations in the fast energy region were based on nuclear model calculations using the EMPIRE-2.19 code. Recently derived dispersive coupled-channel optical model potentials for W and Ta isotopes were instrumental to achieve a very good description of the available microscopic cross-section database. Model covariance data were generated with the Monte Carlo technique to produce a prior estimate for the covariance ... continued below

Recently derived dispersive coupled-channel optical model potentials for W and Ta isotopes were instrumental to achieve a very good description of the available microscopic cross-section database. Model covariance data were generated with the Monte Carlo technique to produce a prior estimate for the covariance matrix. Experimental data were introduced through the GANDR system. The evaluated files were tested on selected fusion neutronics benchmarks and showed marked improvement compared to other existing evaluations.
