Requester: Dr Stanislav SIMAKOV at KARLSRUHE, GER

Project (context): IRDFF project

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].


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].

Comment from requester:
The IRDFF project strives to evaluate, and eventually add to the library, high-threshold reactions with cross section plateaus located between 15/20 MeV and 100/150 MeV to meet the requirements of the accelerator-driven high-energy neutron sources. Note that it is important to know the cross section tail up to 100/150 MeV in order to allow the deconvolution of high-energy quasi-monoenergetic neutron source spectra.
