Project summaryModification of the fission neutron spectrometer for measurement of Cm-246 (fission fragment and neutron detectors, electronics, computer programs). Designing the set-up for measurements of Cm-244. Precise measurements of the spontaneous fission neutron spectra of Cm-244 and Cm-246 in the energy range from 0.1 MeV to 15 MeV with the accuracy of 1–2%.
The fission neutron spectra will be measured by the time-of-flight method relative to the international standard.
The Project will make it possible to use the specialists participated, facilities and equip-ment for peaceful purposes.
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
