Title: An application for streamlined and automated ENDF Cross Section Analysis and visualization (EXSAN)

Abstract

This paper introduces EXSAN, a new open-sourced code developed for streamlined visualization and analysis of Evaluated Nuclear Data File (ENDF)-formatted nuclear data libraries. In addition to viewing cross section data, EXSAN provides the user with an intuitive interface for automated downloading of ENDF data libraries and processing entire libraries with the nuclear cross section code NJOY. Furthermore, EXSAN includes the capability to query a library and obtain rank-ordered lists of reaction-specific cross sections by cross section value and isotope. EXSAN was developed in Python, and it is available on GitHub.
