Title: Information Files of 238U(n,f)/ 235U(n,f) NIFFTE fissionTPC Cross-sections for the Neutron Data Standards Project

Abstract

This report documents input files, output files and underlying assumptions for an uncertainty estimate for nuclear data evaluations purposes of the normalized 238U/ 235U neutron-induced fission cross-section ratios, 238U(n,f)/ 235U(n,f), measured by the NIFFTE fission Time Projection Chamber (fissionTPC). This uncertainty estimate and the resulting files were based on information provided by fissionTPC experimentalists, R.J.Casperson, N.S. Bowden, L. Snyder and K.T. Schmitt, and an EXFOR file compiled by N. Otuka. These files were generated for the Neutron Data Standards project coordinated by the IAEA in order to simplify the incorporation of 238U(n,f)/ 235U(n,f) fissionTPC data into the standards database.
