A ROOT-based analysis tool formeasurements of neutron-induced fissionproducts at the IGISOL facility
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
For the sustainable development of nuclear energy, the handling of used nuclear fuel is a keyissue. Innovative fuel cycles are being developed for the transmutation of minor actinides andlong-lived fission products. In view of these developments, accurate knowledge of the fuelinventory is necessary. The IGISOL facility with JYFLTRAP, at the accelerator laboratory ofthe University of Jyv ̈ skyl ̈ , will be used to measure independent fission yield distributionsaafrom neutron-induced fission on different actinides. In this paper, an analysis tool isdeveloped, using the CERN-based ROOT Data Analysis Framework, with the objective ofperforming full data analysis within the same code. The analysis tool is currently being testedon the data from measurements with 25 MeV protons on a 232 Th target, and some preliminaryresults are presented.
