Neutron Capture Measurements on Minor Actinides at the n_TOF Facility at CERN: Past, Present and Future. Journal of the Korean Physical Society, 59(2), 1809–1812. https://doi.org/10.3938/jkps.59.1809
The successful development of advanced nuclear systems for sustainable energy production and nuclear waste management depends on high quality nuclear data libraries. Recent sensitivity studies and reports have identified the need for substantially improving the accuracy of neutron cross-section data for minor actinides. The n_TOF collaboration has initiated an ambitious experimental program for the measurement of neutron capture cross sections of minor actinides. Two experimental setups have been constructed for this purpose: a Total Absorption Calorimeter (TAC) for measuring neutron capture cross-sections of low-mass and/or radioactive samples and a set of two low neutron sensitivity C₆D₆ detectors for the less radioactive materials.
