Nuclear Data News

The JEFF-3.1 Nuclear Data Library is the latest version of the Joint Evaluated Fission and Fusion Library issued by the Data Bank.

The complete JEFF-3.1 Library suite contains:

The documentation "The JEFF-3.1 Nuclear Data Library", JEFF Report 21, Data Bank, 2006, ISBN 92-64-02314-3, 130 pages was published recently. A limited number of hard copies are available. The corresponding Web page provides further information on the content of the document and the procedure to download the full report.  A CD-ROM with the complete library can also be requested free of charge at the project Web page.

Three ACE format (Monte Carlo) data libraries based on JEFF-3.1 have been released in recent months (see complete list of ACE libraries). Not all contain processed data for all nuclides and materials. Other libraries, based on JEFF-3.1 for deterministic codes are in preparation and will be released during 2007.
