The kinetic energy distribution functions of selected fragments in thermal neutron induced fission of 245Cm have been mesaured at the LOHENGRIN spectrometer of the institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble. The results are compared with the random excitation model REX. Quantitative agreement between experiment and calculations are obtained over a wide range of fragment masses. © 2005 American Institute of Physics

    A factor that may be responsible for the discrepancies in the total delay neutron yields, the relative yields of separate groups of delayed neutrons, and half-lives of their precursors has been investigated. These discrepancies are shown to be attributable to the effect of a concomitant neutron...

    P-odd and T-odd asymmetries in the emission of fragments and light particles have been investigated in ternary fission induced by polarized neutrons. P-odd asymmetries unambiguously point to a violation of parity in the fission process. By contrast, T-odd asymmetries do not necessarily imply a...

    Prompt-fission-neutron multiplicities were measured at a “white” neutron source for the fission of 238U and 235U up to 200 MeV. The data are of great importance in the connection of accelerator-coupled nuclear-reactor systems incinerating actinides, with uranium considered as a...

    The most effective method for transmuting long-lived isotopes contained in spent nuclear fuel into shorter-lived fission products is in a fast neutron spectrum reactor. In the absence of a fast test reactor in the United States, initial irradiation testing of candidate fuels can be performed in...

    The reactor neutron spectrum is one of the fundamental design choices for any fission reactor, but the implications of using a moderated spectrum are vastly different for space reactors as opposed to terrestrial reactors. In addition, the pros and cons of neutron spectra are significantly...

    The process of the formation of a signal by a vacuum fission chamber (VFC) under the irradiation by a short-duration pulsed neutron flux is considered for the first time. It is shown that the collection time of charge carriers in the VFC with plane–parallel electrodes does not exceed 0.4...

    Spent fuel from LWR can be seen as long-live waste if it is not recycled or as a “new fuel” resource if it is recycled into the reactors. Uranium and plutonium have been used for “new fuel” resources from LWR spent fuel as MOX fuel type which is loaded into thermal...

    The neutron-induced fission cross-section of Am has been measured relative to the standard fission cross-section of U between 0.5 and 20MeV. The experiment was performed at the CERN n_TOF facility. Fission fragments were detected by a fast ionization chamber by discriminating against the...
