Title: ORIGEN-S (. cap alpha. ,n) neutron source spectra in borosilicate glass containing HLW (high-level waste)

There is growing interest in the methodology and computational software for evaluating the (..cap alpha..,n) source spectra produced in mixtures of high-level waste (HLW) and borosilicate glass. The need for this development has been seen in previous work involving the analysis of HLW in borosilicate glass. Descriptions and applications of the ORIGEN-S method of computing neutron source spectra by both (..cap alpha..,n) reactions and spontaneous fission of UO/sub 2/ spent fuel have been reported previously. This summary presents a significant expansion of the ORIGEN-S (..cap alpha..,n) model to include ..cap alpha..-interactions with the light elements of borosilicate glass.
