      Measurements of high-energy neutron-induced fission of natPb and 209Bi  [Article]

      Lozano Leyva, Manuel Luis; Quesada Molina, José Manuel; Capote, Roberto; Vicente, M.C.; Durán, Ignacio; Paradela, Carlos; Álvarez, H. (EDP Sciences, 2010)
      The CERN Neutron Time-Of-Flight (n_TOF) facility is well suited to measure low cross sections as those of neutron-induced fission in subactinides. The cross section ratios of natPb and 209Bi relative to 235U and 238U were ...
