Abstract

This work is devoted to the analysis of available experimental and evaluated data on the neutron cross sections for 237Np, comparison of experimental data with the results of theoretical calculations, and the development of more accurate evaluations of the most important cross sections. As a result of the work new version of complete file of evaluated neutron cross sections for 237Np was prepared. This file was included into BROND-3 library the formation of which is under development in Russian Nuclear Data Center.
