Title: NJOY2016 updates for ENDF/B-VIII.0

Abstract

Each release of the ENDF/B library often results in the introduction of new data formats in the ENDF-6 format. With ENDF/B-VIII.0 [1], which was released in February 2018, new formats were added for allowing tabulated fission energy release components in the MF1/MT458 section, to allow for sub-actinide fission and non-neutron induced fission in the MF8/MT18 and MF10/MT18 sections, and to add fission neutron and gamma emission probabilities in the MF6/MT18 section [2]. Processing codes must be adapted to ensure that they are capable of using these new data, or at the very least understand the new formats. NJOY2016, the production version of the nuclear data processing code developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory is no exception to this.
