The neutron time-of-flight facility GELINA installed at the JRC-IRMM Geel (B) has been designed to produce cross section data for neutron induced reactions in the resonance region. It is a multi-user facility, providing a pulsed white neutron source, with a neutron energy range between 10 meV and 20 MeV and a time resolution of 1 ns. The research program concentrates on cross section data needs for nuclear energy applications. In this contribution efforts to improve the quality of cross section data in the resonance region are discussed. These efforts include the implementation of self-indication measurements and improved data reduction and resonance analysis procedures. Due to these efforts accurate neutron-induced cross section data and resonance parameters together with their covariance information can be obtained from thermal up to the unresolved resonance region.

Abstract

The neutron time-of-flight facility GELINA installed at the JRC-IRMM Geel (B) has been designed to produce cross section data for neutron induced reactions in the resonance region. It is a multi-user facility, providing a pulsed white neutron source, with a neutron energy range between 10 meV and 20 MeV and a time resolution of 1 ns. The research program concentrates on cross section data needs for nuclear energy applications. In this contribution efforts to improve the quality of cross section data in the resonance region are discussed. These efforts include the implementation of self-indication measurements and improved data reduction and resonance analysis procedures. Due to these efforts accurate neutron-induced cross section data and resonance parameters together with their covariance information can be obtained from thermal up to the unresolved resonance region.
