Measurement of Delayed-Neutron Yieldfrom 237Np Fission Induced by Thermal Neutrons

Motivations of the measurements of the yields ofthe delayed neutrons for transuranium elements

  • Well known the fundamental role of delayed neutrons in the safety operation and time-dependant behavior of nuclear reactors.

  • The delayed neutron data such as the absolute yield of DN, relative abundances of DN, half-lives of their precursors, and energy spectra of DN are important for kinetics and safety operations of nuclear reactors.

  • In spite of great efforts in investigation of delayed neutron physics the fundamental delayed neutron characteristics for most common fissionable reactor isotopes are little-studied.

Special thanks for our supervisors, whose patiently answered for all

kinds of our questions.

For Mr. Zawodny and Mr. Chmielowski for help to survive in this

beautiful country.

And, of course, for direction of all JINR sections for possibility to see

one of the biggest laboratories in the world.
