Title: Fissions determination in /sup 239/Pu sample. Final report. [Number of fissions]

Abstract

A sample of /sup 239/Pu of nominally 40 mg mass was irradiated for 24 hours at the IRT Corporation /sup 252/Cf facility as part of their program to measure fission-product decay heat. The number of fissions created in this irradiation was measured at ORNL by studying the gross gamma-ray spectra measureed with high resolution for cooling times between 13 and 32 days. The number of fissions was determined to be (1.326 +- 0.019) x 10/sup 11/ using yields measured for the 228-keV (/sup 132/Te), 497-keV (/sup 103/Ru), and 1597-keV (/sup 140/La) gamma rays and calibration factors based on absolute fission counting. 14 references.
