Abstract

A new neutron time-of-flight facility has recently been constructed and become available at CERN. The high instantaneous neutron flux, high resolution and low background make this facility well suited for high quality neutron cross section measurements. The scientific programme of the nTOF collaboration include the measurements of neutron capture, fission and (n,xn) reaction cross sections for nuclear technology, nuclear astrophysics and fundamental nuclear physics. In this paper, the need for neutron induced reaction cross sections for ADS related applications will be mentioned. The nTOF facility will be described and the performed measurements will be illustrated with the measurement of 232 Th.
