The simulation of neutron irradiation–induced transmutation using inventory codes is an important part of the research into materials in various nuclear environments, including fusion, fission, medical physics, nuclear security, and astrophysics. These simulations, even in their simplest form, such as the neutron irradiation of a single pure elem…

Experimental cross sections are compared with the results of calculations including all activation channels for the stable isotopes ofMn and Cu, for neutron incident energies below 20MeV as well as up to 40–50MeV. It results that within the former energy range, the model calculations are most sensitive to the parameters related to nuclei in the e…

Achieving the economically viable release of energy by the fusion process has proved a major scientific and technological challenge. The nuclear reactions involved in the fusion process are well understood, but the interaction of the neutrons with the materials surrounding the plasma is an area of current research. The neutrons have energies larger…

The European Activation System (EASY) has been developed for activation calculations. It comprises the EAF nuclear data libraries and the FISPACT inventory code. A new version (EASY-2007) has been released recently that represents a significant extension of previous versions. It contains neutron-induced, deuteron-induced and protoninduced data that…

An overview is presented of the nuclear data required for nuclear design analyses of fusion technology focusing on ITER, the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, and IFMIF, the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility. The status of the available data evaluations and libraries is reviewed with regard to the required material…

The status of the Joint Evaluated Fission and Fusion file (JEFF) is described. JEFF-3.1 comprises a significant update of actinide evaluations, materials evaluations that have emerged from various European nuclear data projects, the activation library JEFF-3.1/A, the decay data and fission yield sub-libraries, and fusion-related data files from the…
