  • Neutron capture on ^{205}Tl: depicting the abundance pattern of lead isotopes in s-process nucleosynthesis 

    Casanovas Hoste, Adrià; Tarifeño Saldivia, Ariel Esteban; Domingo-Pardo, C; Calviño Tavares, Francisco (2018-01-10)
    External research report
    Open Access
    We propose to use the TOF technique to measure the neutron capture cross section of 205Tl(n,gamma) over the full energy range of stellar interest. An accurate measurement of this cross section is needed for a complete and ...
  • Radiative capture on 242Pu for MOX fuel reactors 

    Guerrero, Carlos; Balibrea-Correa, J.; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere (2013-09-25)
    External research report
    Open Access
    The use of MOX fuel (mixed-oxide fuel made of UO2 and PuO2) in nuclear reactors allows substituting a large fraction of the enriched Uranium by Plutonium reprocessed from spent fuel. Indeed around 66% of the plutonium from ...

    New industrial and didactic flow solutions based on new flow concepts are needed to meet the unprecedented requirements set by the dramatically increasing energy needs, the use of Thermoelectric didactive devices are neded ...
  • Mezcla turbulenta por rejilla oscilante : nuevos experimentos y técnicas de alta resolución 

    Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Sánchez Ariz, Miguel Ángel; Salud Puig, Josep (2015-07-05)
    External research report
    Open Access
    We present several experimental studies on Turbulent Mixing produced by the advance of a density interface produced by brine when an oscilating grid produces zero-mean turbulence at a certain vertical distance. The older ...
  • Measurement of the neutron capture cross sections of 233U, 237Np, 240,242Pu, 241,243Am and 245Cm with a total absorption calorimeter at n_TOF
