It is necessary in the ADS design study. Obninsk scientists report important difference of fission neutron spectra from ENDF/B-VI evaluation at MeV energies.

It appears that experimental work for the neutron-induced reaction will be near to impossible on account of the required amount of sample material. Could this work be carried out by using a transfer reaction?
The importance of the fission neutron spectrum is not contested. It is a significant problem also for the major actinides and for those it is a recurrent subject of debate. The present request is dubbed a general request since it is not backed by a direct sensitivity study. The methodology of such sensitivity studies was recently explored by WPEC Subgroup 26 ( International Evaluation Co-operation, Volume 26 ). In that report it is also mentioned that substantial uncertainties may result from the fission spectrum but that further work is required.
Work in progress (as of SG-C review of May 2018)
