Abstract

The work is devoted to the analysis of available experimental and evaluated data on the neutron cross sections for Cm-242, Cm-243, Cm-244. A comparison of experimental data with the results of theoretical calculations and the evaluations of the most important cross sections were performed. As a result the new version of complete files of evaluated neutron cross sections for Cm-242, Cm-243, Cm-244 were performed. These files were included into the BROND-3 library the formations of which is under development in Russian Nuclear Data Center.

Keywords
experimental and evaluated data, neutron cross sections for 242Cm, 243Cm and 244Cm, neutron resonance region, optical-statistical calculation
