The NIFFTE TPC Gas Handling System
The Neutron Induced Fission Fragment Tracking Experiment (NIFFTE) uses time projection chamber (TPC) to determine the fission cross section of actinides. Although the cross section has been previously measured using various methods, the uncertainty can be reduced to sub 1% using a TPC.
