Simulations providing estimates of the ELI-NP gamma-beam energy bandwidths and beam spot dimensions for the collimated beams, and expected fission rates with the narrow-width γ beams of bandwidth 0.3% and 0.5% on actinide targets, 238U and 232Th, are reported. These estimates support the feasibility of precise transmission resonance measurements with the narrow-width ELI-NP γ beams. The status of the design and construction of a state-of-the-art experimental array, consisting of four double-sided, Frisch-gridded Bragg ionization chambers, coupled to ΔE-E detectors, is reported.
