Background: The design of new nuclear reactors and

transmutation devices requires to reduce the present neutron cross

section uncertainties of minor actinides.

Purpose: Improvement of the Am243(n,γ) cross section uncertainty.

Method: The Am243(n,γ) cross section has been measured at the n_TOF facility at CERN with a BaF2 total absorption calorimeter, in the energy range between 0.7 eV and 2.5 keV.

Results: The Am243(n,γ)

cross section has been successfully measured in the mentioned energy

range. The resolved resonance region has been extended from 250 eV up to

400 eV. In the unresolved resonance region our results are compatible

with one of the two incompatible capture data sets available below 2.5

keV. The data available in EXFOR and in the literature have been used to

perform a simple analysis above 2.5 keV.

Conclusions: The results of this measurement contribute to reduce the Am243(n,γ)

cross section uncertainty and suggest that this cross section is

underestimated up to 25% in the neutron energy range between 50 eV and a

few keV in the present evaluated data libraries.
