Mr Christophe DESTOUCHES at CAD-DER, FR
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].
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 Sn-117(n,n') reaction has by far the lowest reaction threshold and would probe the energy region in the 100 keV range [Destouches2016,2017]. The cross section database is poor. A new evaluation of the cross section is needed, as well as integral measurements in well-characterised neutron fields.
Work in progress (as of SG-C review of May 2018)
