Neutron capture cross sections of actinides are of great relevance for the Transmutation of Nuclear Waste
in Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS) and Generation-IV reactors. The neutron capture cross sections of 237Np and
240Pu were measured at the n TOF facility with a Total Absorption Calorimeter. The data have been analyzed with the
SAMMY code. The corresponding covariance matrices have been generated. The final cross sections are presented
and compared to the previously existing ones.
