The neutron spectrum from Pelican provided the very data that confirmed Haldane state exists in fedotovite as proposed by our other measurements and theoretical studies.
In order to somehow close this significant drawback of the theory of neutron moderation, until today nothing else was offered except an artificial way (in the sense that it does not have strict manner of scattering spectrum of moderated neutrons from the scattering law) to complement Fermi neutron moderation spectrum in thermal neutron energy with Maxwell neutron spectrum, and, for the tasks of Maxwell neutron spectrum in the first place we need to recalculate the moderating medium temperareture T in the temperature of the neutron gas [T.
Results were obtained also for a fission neutron spectrum having a Watt shape.
Measures such as the use of an annular core to avoid this tend to degrade the neutron spectrum, making the reactor less effective as a transuranics burner.
