Abstract [en]

For nuclear modelling and improved evaluation of nuclear data, knowledge of fluctuations of the prompt neutron multiplicity as a function of incident neutron energy is requested for the major actinides 235U and 239Pu. Experimental investigations of the prompt fission neutron emission in resonance-neutron induced fission on 235U are taking place at the GELINA facility of the IRMM. The experiment employs an array of scintillation detectors (SCINTIA) in conjunction with a newly designed 3D position-sensitive twin Frisch-grid ionization chamber. In addition, the mass-dependent prompt neutron multiplicity, (A), has attracted particular attention. Recent, sophisticated nuclear fission models predict that the additional excitation energy, brought into the fission system at higher incident neutron energies, leads to an increased neutron multiplicity only for heavy fragments, as observed in the 237Np(n,f) reaction. A first feasibility study has been performed at the JRC-IRMM VdG accelerator to measure nu(A) for 235U(n,f).
