JENDL-4.0: A New Library for Innovative Nuclear Energy Systems
- The fourth version of Japanese Evaluated Nuclear Data Library (JENDL-4.0) has been produced in cooperation with the Japanese Nuclear Data Committee. In the new library, much emphasis is placed on the improvements of fission product and minor actinide data. Achieving this, nuclear model codes were developed. Coupled-channel optical model parameters, which can be applied to a wide mass range, were obtained for evaluations. Thermal cross sections of many actinides were revised on the basis of experimental data or systematics. Simultaneous evaluation was performed for the fission cross sections of important uranium and plutonium isotopes above 10 keV. The new library JENDL-4.0 is made available on the Web site of the JAEA Nuclear Data Center.
