IAEA Nuclear Data Library / Thermal Scattering Law
The IAEA Nuclear Data Library / Thermal Scattering Law is a database that was assembeled for general use in the public domain as an IAEA NDL in ENDF-6 format at the end of 2006. These data sets have also been fully (or partially) adopted within various international/national nuclear applications libraries for their immediate use (JEFF-3.1 and ENDF/B-VII).
The calculations of the thermal scattering law data were performed a long time ago
and were tailored to the computer technology of the sixties.
Since then the calculations were repeated
for the ENDF/B-VI library, but with essentially the same input data, except for a somewhat extended energy
transfer range. Water is the most widely used moderator/coolant in nuclear reactors. Zirconium hydride
is used in TRIGA research reactors, which are operated in many laboratories in the world.
an improved library of thermal scattering law data for hydrogen bound in water, hydrogen bound in zirconium
hydride, and deuterium bound in heavy water.
