NUCLEAR DATA FOR TRANSACTINIDES IN THE RECOMMENDED EVALUATED NEUTRON DATA LIBRARY (BROND)
International Atomic Energy Agency
The results of the evaluation of the complete system of neutron data for transactinides are discussed. The application of the coupled-channel method even for nuclei with a large spin value (235U), a correct model of level density, a multistep statistical model with taking into account the competition of the fission process as well as the use of new experimental data allow the reliability of neutron data evaluation for transactinides to be increased.
