Parameter Optimization and Sensitivity Studies of Spontaneous Fission with FREYA

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

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 )

11 Background: Spontaneous fission events emit prompt neutrons correlated with one another in 12 emission angle and energy. Measurements of these correlations can shed light on the partitioning 13 of

High resolution measurement of tagged two-neutron energy and angle correlations in Cf252 (sf)

Background: Spontaneous fission events emit prompt neutrons correlated with one another in emission angle and energy. Purpose: We explore the relationship in energy and angle between correlated

Event-by-event evaluation of the prompt fission neutron spectrum from 239Pu(n,f)

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

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 )

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

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

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
