Abstract
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 [1][2][3] 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) [4] 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.
Keywords: accelerator driven system, n_TOF, Total Absorption Calorimeter, TAC, neutron capture, cross section, nuclear waste, transmutation, Generation IV, ADS, nuclear reactor, nuclear energy, nuclear data, barium fluoride, actinides, plutonium, americium, uranium
