Abstract

The need for accurate nuclear reaction data of actinides is well documented and several initiatives from international organizations for improvement have been initiated in the past. This need, particularly in view of method development for non-destructive assay of nuclear waste, has generated a joint effort to use prompt and delayed neutron activation techniques to enhance nuclear capture data of some long lived actinides such as 237Np, 242Pu and 241Am in the frame of a multilateral cooperation. This research initiative is targeted to lay grounds for the development of a non-destructive active neutron interrogation technique to quantify actinides in mixed waste and residues from decommissioning of nuclear installations for safe treatment and storage of such materials.
