3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

  FORMAT: POPOP-4

  NUMBER OF GROUPS: --

NUCLIDES: H, D, Li, Be, B-10, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Ti, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ga, Zr, Nb, Mo, Cd, Ba, Eu, Gd, Ta, W, Hg, Pb, U-235, U-238 and Np.

ORIGIN: The library was compiled from the literature and from private files of contributors.

  WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: --

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
The library may be used with POPOP-4 to prepare neutron to gamma- ray group transfer matrices. These can then be merged with multigroup neutron cross section sets (from GAM-2, XSDRN, SUPERTOG,  etc.) and multigroup gamma-ray cross section sets (from MUG, GAMLEG, etc.) to give a cross section set which can be used for coupled neutron and secondary gamma-ray calculations in multigroup transport codes such as ANISN, DOT, DTF-4, and MORSE.
     Data in the library is either

(1) the intensities of secondary gamma rays resulting from neutron-  nucleus interactions (yields), or
(2) the secondary gamma-ray production cross sections for neutron- nucleus interactions (cross sections).
The initial library contains data for H, D, Li, Be, 10-B, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Ti, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ga, Zr, Nb, Mo, Cd, Ba, Eu, Gd, Ta, W, Hg, Pb, 235-U, 238-U, and Np. Some reactions for which data appear are radiative capture,  fission, inelastic scattering (n,alpha), and (n,p). For many nuclides there are several data sets for a particular reaction.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The retrieval program is referred to as POPOP-4 library TAPE MAKER. The use of this program is described in ref. 2, appendix E.
This program will read a BCD formatted POPOP-4 library tape and make a binary POPOP-4 library tape for use with POPOP-4. In addition the program includes the capability of

(a) making or updating a BCD formatted library tape,
(b) making or updating a binary library tape for use with POPOP-4,
(c) listing any or all the data sets on a library tape,
(d) punching any or all the data sets on a library tape in the
format for use with POPOP-4. (this capability is usually used to retrieve data sets in order to modify the data prior to use with POPOP-4.
