Neutron Resonance Analysis School in Geel, Belgium

    The fourth Neutron Resonance Analysis School was being hosted at the EC-JRC in Geel, Belgium from November 6 to 10, 2017. Previous schools took place in 2008, 2011 and 2014. The school is organized within the FP7 project CHANDA (Solving Challenges in Nuclear Data for the Safety of European Nuclear Facilities), and in collaboration with the UK Nuclear Data Network.

  Neutron-induced nuclear reactions are important in a wide range of applications ranging from stellar nucleosynthesis to applications of nuclear technology such as accelerator driven systems, generation IV reactors, transmutation of nuclear waste and nuclear fuel cycle investigations. They are also important for fundamental nuclear physics including symmetry breaking effects in compound nuclei and the investigation of nuclear level densities. Accurate measurements and a careful analysis of measured nuclear data are the crucial basis for evaluated nuclear data libraries, which in their turn form the basis for technological applications.

   This school was intended to provide an overview to the measurement and analysis techniques associated with neutron induced reactions alongside the nuclear theory governing these reactions. Lectures and hands-on computer exercises was alternated constantly. Topics included neutron-induced reactions (including elastic and in-elastic cross section measurements), the optical model and its link to the resonance region, neutron time-of-flight measurements, integral measurements, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear data libraries and more. The use of Monte Carlo radiation transport codes in nuclear data measurements and calculations had been discussed by participants and training for Geant4 was provided.

   The school was attended by representatives from Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Great Britain, Ukraine and other countries.

   Reseachers from the Institute for Safety Problems of NPP, NAS of Ukraine who participated in training were:  head of the Department of Neutron-Physical Processes – Roman Godun, junior researcher of the Department of Neutron-Physical Processes – Anatoly Doroshenko, head of the Board of young scientists – Serhiy Kupriyanchuk, research assistant of the  Department for Physics of Reactors – Tatyana Vlasenko.
