IAEA Nuclear Data Library / Thermal Scattering Law

​The IAEA Nuclear Data Library / Thermal Scattering Law is a database of thermal scattering law data for hydrogen bound in water, hydrogen bound in zirconium hydride, and deuterium bound in heavy water.

The calculations of the thermal scattering law data were tailored to the computer technology of the sixties. Since then, the calculations were repeated for the ENDF/B-VI library, using however the same input data (except for a somewhat extended energy transfer range). The updated database was assembled at the of 2006 for general use as an IAEA NDL in ENDF-6 format. These data sets have also been fully (or partially) adopted within various international/national nuclear applications libraries for their immediate use (JEFF-3.1 and ENDF/B-VII).
