CONSUEGRA, D. et al. Study of light-particle multiplicities in p + non-fissionable nuclei events in the 0.5 - 2 GeV energy range. Nucleus [online]. 2018, n.63, pp. 34-37. ISSN 2075-5635.

In recent years, the investigation of spallation reactions have caught the attention of scientific community due to their application in the transmutation of nuclear waste by using the Accelerator Driven System (ADS) reactors. Due to the experimental difficulties that nuclear reactions researches face; the study of spallation reaction by using simulation codes is more suitable for generating more complete database for different energy ranges. This work aims to study spallation reactions induced by protons at intermediate energies 0.5 - 2 GeV on non-fissionable nuclei by using the Monte Carlo code: CRISP (Collaboration Rio-Ilhéus-São Paulo). The target nuclei studied were: 184 W, 197 Au and 208 Pb, focusing on the last one. Multiplicity of light particles obtained with CRISP was compared with the available experimental data and other Monte Carlo codes involved in the study of spallation reactions, resulting on a quite satisfactory agreement.

Keywords : spallation; multiplicity; light nuclei; accelerator driven transmutation; computerized simulation; GeV range 01-10.
