Tritium production by fast neutrons on oxygen : an integral experiment /

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report describes an integral experiment of tritium production in water by neutrons from the LANSCE/WNR spallation neutron source. Neutron energies covered the range from 1 MeV to about 300 MeV. The neutron fluence was determined with a 238U fission chamber. After irradiation, the water samples were analyzed for tritium. The results are compared with calculations and agreement is found to within a factor of 2.
