Nuclear Science and Technology, Volume 2: Neutron Physics provides information pertinent to neutron and reactor physics. This book presents a discussion of the general area of energy sources, surveying the fusion problem.
Organized into 16 chapters, this volume starts with an overview of the broad range of other research related to nuclear technology, radiation effects, solid state work, chemistry, and materials research. This book then examines the experimental data for the cross sections and fission parameters of the fissile nuclides. Other chapters outline the role of fast choppers in time-of-flight spectrometers and consider the total cross section measurements. This book discusses as well the various experiments performed to test the operation of the system. The final chapter deals with the long-range prospects of fusion power.
This book is a valuable resource for graduate students, physicists, nuclear engineers, researchers, scientists involved in fusion research will find this book extremely useful.
