Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Experimental results for the232Th(n, 2n) reaction have been collected from the literature and evaluated. Updating of the measured cross section has been carried out with recent nuclear data. The recommended excitation function is described by the Pade approximation. Cross sections averaged over the spectra of neutrons from thermal neutron induced fission of235U and spontaneous fission of252Cf are also given.
