4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
The newest of the FSXLIB libraries based on JENDL-3.3 was released in Japan in May 2002. It is called FSXLIB-J33 and is a continuous energy cross section library for use with MCNP. Two problems were identified in the original JENDL-3.3 in Am-241 data. One is the missing of MF/MT=4/18, and the other is incorrect neutron spectra for MT=18 below 500 keV. The updated data were designated JENDL-3.3u. These modifications, plus some corrections to the mass table in xsdir for some missing nuclei, were reflected in the previous release, which was distributed by RSICC with package identifier D00223MNYCP00. In the current release, RSICC ID: D00223MNYCP01, index files xsdir.fsxlb331 and xsdir.fsxlb332 were updated to include atomic weights, which were missing for 23 nuclides.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
FSXLIB-J33 was developed for solving neutron transport calculations with the CCC-700/MCNP4C code system. The data can also be used with other versions of MCNP. Reliability of the library was confirmed by solving several benchmark problems.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
A modified version of the NJOY 99.67 processing code from LANL was used to produce ACE type cross section data from JENDL 3.3. Modifications are noted in the JAERI-Data/Code 2003-011 report, which is included in this package. The format conforms to the continuous energy neutron cross section table as defined in the MCNP4C manual. Photon production data are supplied for some nuclides in the expanded photon production format. Kerma factors are provided. The processing temperature of cross section is 300 K. Upper limit of thermal region: 4.6 eV. Accuracy of pointwise cross-section reconstruction: 0.1%. The FSXLIB-J33 library includes 337 nuclides.
