Title: Measurements of neutron capture cross-sections at n{sub T}OF

Abstract

Capture cross-sections on isotopes relevant to accelerator driven systems for energy production and nuclear waste transmutation, and to stellar nucleosynthesis have been studied at the innovative neutron time of flight facility n{sub T}OF at CERN. The extremely high instantaneous neutron flux and the low background conditions in the experimental area make this facility unique for accurate measurements on low-mass or radioactive samples. The n{sub T}OF facility is described, together with the features of the experimental apparata used. First results of the experimental campaign 2002-2004 are presented.
