In the present work the Monte Carlo calculations of nucleon-induced fission on actinides and pre-actinides from 100 MeV to 1 GeV, described in a recent paper of ours [1], are extended up to an incident energy of 8 GeV. The calculated (p,f) cross sections are compared with the few experimental data available in the literature. The same model parameters are used to predict (n,f) cross sections in the same energy range.

Abstract

In the present work the Monte Carlo calculations of nucleon-induced fission on actinides and pre-actinides from 100 MeV to 1 GeV, described in a recent paper of ours [1], are extended up to an incident energy of 8 GeV. The calculated (p,f) cross sections are compared with the few experimental data available in the literature. The same model parameters are used to predict (n,f) cross sections in the same energy range. Possible shortcomings of decay models at high incident energies are discussed. © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2017.
