Requester

Dr Stanislav SIMAKOV at KIT, GER

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

5%-10%

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.
The present request concerns the following reactions:
Nb-93(n,2n)Nb-92m
Nb-93(n,3n)Nb-91m
Nb-93(n,4n)Nb-90
