Project (context): IRDFF project

Impact:
The International Reactor Dosimetry and Fusion File (IRDFF) aims at providing evaluated neutron dosimetry reactions validated for all applications related to fission reactors and fusion technology development [IAEA2017].

Accuracy:
2%-5%

Justification document:
Accurate cross sections as well as spectrum-averaged cross sections (SACS) in relevant and well-characterized neutron fields are essential for improvement and validation of the evaluated data [Simakov2017].
Following a recommendation from the IAEA Data Development Project on Neutron Standards [Pronyaev2013], the IRDFF project supports SACS measurements of high-threshold (above 10 MeV) dosimetry cross-sections in well-characterized 252Cf(sf) and 235U(nth,f) neutron fields in order to improve the cross sections and/or the high-energy part of the prompt fission neutron spectra.

Comment from requester:
Measurements of the spectrum-averaged cross section are missing for validation purposes and for improvement of the cross section and prompt fission neutron spectrum above 10 MeV. See Cf252U235_HighThreshold.pdf below.

Accurate cross sections as well as spectrum-averaged cross sections (SACS) in relevant and well-characterized neutron fields are essential for improvement and validation of the evaluated data [Simakov2017].
Following a recommendation from the IAEA Data Development Project on Neutron Standards [Pronyaev2013], the IRDFF project supports SACS measurements of high-threshold (above 10 MeV) dosimetry cross-sections in well-characterized 252Cf(sf) and 235U(nth,f) neutron fields in order to improve the cross sections and/or the high-energy part of the prompt fission neutron spectra.

Comment from requester:
Measurements of the spectrum-averaged cross section are missing for validation purposes and for improvement of the cross section and prompt fission neutron spectrum above 10 MeV. See Cf252U235_HighThreshold.pdf below.

Impact:
A better knowledge of the prompt fission neutron spectrum (PFNS) from Pu-239 thermal-neutron induced fission is important for high-burnup fuels and new generation reactors. This is especially true when considering neutron radiation damage from the PFNS high-energy tail, which can be improved thanks to the measurements of spectrum-averaged cross section (SACS) of well-known high-threshold dosimetry reactions.
Deficiency in Pu-239(n,f) PFNS at large outgoing energies may be responsible for the discrepancies shown in Fig. 178 above 7.5 MeV of average reaction energy, see Fig. 178 in Ref. [1].

Accuracy:
3% cross-section ratio uncertainty relative to reference cross sections

Justification document:
No SACS measurements exist in Pu-239(nth,f) prompt neutron field. In the latest IAEA evaluation, the extrapolation of Pu-239(nth,f) PFNS to outgoing energies above 8 MeV is based on SACS estimated by interpolation between SACS measured in U-233, U-235 and Cf-252 prompt neutron fields, see page 74-76, Fig. 43 and Table XXVI in Ref. [2].

Comment from requester:
SACS measurements of high-threshold dosimetry reactions are requested to improve further the high-energy tail of Pu-239(nth,f) PFNS above 8 MeV of outgoing energy. These measurements should be performed relative to high-threshold reference cross sections: Al-27(n,a), Au-197(n,2n), Ni-58(n,p).
