7Li(p,n) Nuclear Data Library for Incident Proton Energies to 150 MeV
Abstract
We describe evaluation methods that make use of experimental data, and nuclear model calculations, to develop an ENDFformatted data library for the reaction p + Li7 for incident protons with energies up to 150 MeV. The important 7Li(p,n_0) and 7Li(p,n_1) reactions are evaluated from the experimental data, with their angular distributions represented using Lengendre polynomial expansions. The decay of the remaining reaction flux is estimated from GNASH nuclear model calculations. The evaluated ENDFdata are described in detail, and illustrated in numerous figures. We also illustrate the use of these data in a representative application by a radiation transport simulation with the code MCNPX.
