We present the preliminary results of the 238 U(n,gamma) reaction cross section measurement, performed on April 2012 at the CERN n_TOF facility using C6D6 scintillation detectors over an energy range from thermal to 1 MeV. The goal of this measurement, which is part of a larger proposal, is to reach an uncertainty of 2% in the cross section. The experimental set-up and the methods used to obtain this result are described.

Abstract

We present the preliminary results of the 238 U(n,gamma) reaction cross section measurement, performed on April 2012 at the CERN n_TOF facility using C6D6 scintillation detectors over an energy range from thermal to 1 MeV. The goal of this measurement, which is part of a larger proposal, is to reach an uncertainty of 2% in the cross section. The experimental set-up and the methods used to obtain this result are described.
