Y-89 MACS case

The MACS for Y-89 is fully determined by the resolved resonance region (neutron energies up to 100 keV), for kT = 5 keV. At higher temperatures, the MACS fraction covers up to 90% at kT = 30 keV, and up to 40% for kT = 100 keV. Here below, these estimates are shown for the capture cross section taken from the evaluated nuclear data file JENDL-4.0.

 


The MACS derived from the resolved resonance region (data file from 17-JAN-2022), measured at n_TOF, are given here below.

MACS plot and hi-res table

A comparison with the KADONIS-1.0 database and with the values available in the ENDF/B-VIII.0 (j80) and JENDL-4.0 (j40) libraries is shown in the figure below. A table with a much finer temperature grid is available here.

MACS vs temperature

DRC contribution?

DRC contribution to the capture cross section has been evaluated. The ground (2-) and first excited state (3- at 0.202 MeV) of 90Y have a strong | 89Y(1/2-) > ⊗ | 2d5/2 > configuration, with their spectroscopic strength of the order of 50% each (see ENDSF). The second (0- at 1.21 MeV) and third (1- at 1.37 MeV) excited states have, in turn, a | 89Y(1/2-) > ⊗ | 3s1/2 > configuration, also with approximately 50% spectroscopic strength each. The p-wave DRC component to the MACS turns out to be less than 1 mb, for the whole range of temperatures in consideration here. Therefore, no DRC component has been added to the MACS.
