### Parameter Optimization and Sensitivity Studies of Spontaneous Fission with FREYA

• Physics
EPJ Web of Conferences
• 2020
For many years, the state of the art for simulating fission in transport codes amounted to sampling from average distributions. However, such "average" fission models have limited capabilities.

### Employing FREYA for fission product yield evaluations

• Physics
• 2020
The fast event-by-event fission code FREYA (Fission Reaction Event Yield Algorithm) generates large samples of complete fission events while employing only a few physics-based parameters. Not only is

### High resolution measurement of tagged two-neutron energy and angle correlations in 252 Cf ( sf )

• Physics

• Physics
• 2012
We have developed an improved evaluation method for the spectrum of neutrons emitted in fission of {sup 239}Pu induced by incident neutrons with energies up to 20 MeV. The covariance data, including

### Event-by-event study of neutron observables in spontaneous and thermal fission

• Physics
• 2011
The event-by-event fission model FREYA is extended to spontaneous fission of actinides and a variety of neutron observables are studied for spontaneous fission and fission induced by thermal neutrons

### Prompt fission γ-ray spectrum characteristics from 240 Pu ( sf ) and 242 Pu ( sf )

• Physics
• 2016
In this paper we present first results for prompt fission γ -ray spectra (PFGS) characteristics from the spontaneous fission (sf) of Pu and Pu. For Pu(sf) we obtained, after proper unfolding of the

### Calculation of fission observables through event-by-event simulation

• Geology
• 2009
The increased interest in more exclusive fission observables has demanded more detailed models. We present here a new computational model, $\mathrm{FREYA}$, that aims to meet this need by producing

### Reevaluation of Prompt Neutron Emission Multiplicity Distributions for Spontaneous Fission

• Physics
• 2008
Abstract The prompt neutron emission probability distributions and average values (Pν and 〈ν〉, respectively) for nuclei that decay via spontaneous fission have been reevaluated to determine if any
