The neutron Time-of-Flight facility at CERN has been used for a series of neutron capture and fission cross section measurements. The facility, detectors and data analysis techniques are described, followed by a brief review of the capture results and of the preliminary results for selected fission cross sections. The problem of photon strength functions is discussed and preliminary first results are presented. All these subjects are discussed with respect to their implications in Nuclear Astrophysics. The last section is dedicated to the future perspectives concerning the next experimental campaign and the upgrade of the facility.

Abstract

The neutron Time-of-Flight facility at CERN has been used for a series of neutron capture and fission cross section measurements. The facility, detectors and data analysis techniques are described, followed by a brief review of the capture results and of the preliminary results for selected fission cross sections. The problem of photon strength functions is discussed and preliminary first results are presented. All these subjects are discussed with respect to their implications in Nuclear Astrophysics. The last section is dedicated to the future perspectives concerning the next experimental campaign and the upgrade of the facility.
