Presentation

The description of nuclear reactions represents an important test for both the appropriateness of reaction mechanism models and evaluation of nuclear data requested for applications. Basic problems are still present in neutron data evaluations even in the advanced nuclear reaction models presently involved within, e.g., the Joint Evaluated Fission and Fusion File (JEFF) evaluated nuclear data project. The nuclear data topic is considered a critical task for selecting and validating the best materials for constructing fusion power reactors, so that it is a priority of the EC domestic agency Fusion for Energy (F4E) related to the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) and International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) fusion programmes. Overall, the theoretical description of the neutron interactions with nuclei needs significant improvements that could be validated by suitable description of experimental data within also the F4E Framework Partnership Agreement No. F4E-FPA-168 (2011-2014). At the same time, following our local results as well as in order to additionally check them, connection of computational studies and further measurements is planned. It is thus concerned participation to proposal and performance of further experiments at n_TOF/CERN and NFS/SPIRAL-2 facilities.
