Determination of the neutron resonance parameters of (99)Tc in the energy range up to 5 KeV
Within the framework of a collaboration between the institute for reference materials and measurements at Geel, Belgium, and the French Commissariat a L'energie atomique, a project has been started to study neutron cross sections of long-living fission products and minor actinides. As (99)Tc is in quantity the most important fission product produced in conventional nuclear power plants and as its ability to migrate in storage glasses is quite large, (99)Tc is a interesting candidate for neutron transmutation. Measurements of both the capture and the total neutron cross sections have been performed at the pulsed white neutron source GELINA at Geel using the time-of-flight method. Resonance parameters in the resolved resonance region up to 5000 eV are given.
