Evaluation of neutron total and capture cross sections on $$^{99}$$Tc in the unresolved resonance region

Iwamoto, Nobuyuki ; Katabuchi, Tatsuya*

The reliable nuclear data on Technetium-99 ($$^{99}$$Tc) are indispensable for wide energy range up to a few MeV, in order to develop environmental load reducing technology. Nevertheless, it is found that the total cross sections of evaluated libraries show large difference in the energies above the resolved resonance to 1 MeV due to no available experimental data. The total cross section was calculated by the coupled-channels optical model. In order to constrain the total cross section in the unresolved resonance region we adopted neutron strength function derived from the resolved resonance data of JENDL-4.0, together with experimental data above 1 MeV. The calculation of capture cross section was done by using the CCONE code. The resonance spacing was derived from the resonance data and used to fix the level density parameter. The present evaluation suggests that the total cross section is different from that of JENDL-4.0. In this presentation, the obtained total and capture cross sections will be compared and discussed with those of evaluated libraries.
