Comparison of Measured and Calculated Transmutation for Fusion Materials Irradiated by Spallation Neutrons
Calculations of transmutation product yields in copper are compared to experimental data in the 200-450 MeV range. Calculations were performed with the LAHET (Los Alamos high energy transport) computer code. Experimental data were obtained at the IPNS (intense pulsed neutron source). The calculations generally agree with the data within a factor of 2 indicating that the LAHET code can be used to predict nuclear transmutation rates at spallation neutron sources. In general, the LAHET code underestimates the production of nuclides.
