A new 40Ca(n,n’γ)40Ca experiment has been performed at the European Commission - Joint Research Center (EC - JRC) Geel Electron LINear Accelerator (GELINA) facility in Belgium. This isotope is of importance for the nuclear energy industry due to fact that Generation IV Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs)will use, among other candidates, the LiF−CaF2melt. Considering that the neutron inelastic angle-integratedγ-production data is relatively scarce, providing a new low uncertainty, high resolution data set in an extended incident energy range can also help better constrain the theoretical models aiding to their improvement. The data has been acquired with the Gamma Array for Inelastic Neutron Scattering(GAINS) experimental setup, located at the 100-m measurement cabin. GAINS is an array of 12 HPGe detectors with a relative efficiency of 100%. The kinetic energy of the neutrons ranged from 100 keV up to20 MeV and it was determined using the time of flight method. We will shortly present the experimental setup, data analysis procedure and experimental results:γ-production, level and total inelastic cross sections.
