The IAEA held a Technical Meeting on (alpha,n) data needs for various applications. The meeting reviewed the current status in (alpha,n) measurements, models, codes and evaluated libraries with a view to identifying the gaps in all above areas and proposing the necessary actions to address the gaps and produce reliable (alpha,n) data for the applications.
The focus was on (alpha,n) reactions at low energies up to 10 MeV relevant for applications in (i) nuclear fuel cycle, (ii) spent fuel management, nonproliferation, (iii) low background experiments and (iv) nuclear astrophysics.
-theory, models and codes,
-evaluations and evaluated libraries.
The meeting was virtual and was held from Monday to Friday from 15:00 to 18:00 CET.
The summary report of the meeting is available in INDC(NDS)-0836.
