Abstract: The development of innovative nuclear energy technology requires a more precise knowledge of nuclear data than presently available. That is the case of the following actinides 232Th, 234U, 237Np and 233U for which the fission cross sections have been measured at the n_TOF facility, a neutron source recently built at CERN with a high intensity flux and an extensive neutron energy range (from eV to GeV). The fission detection is based on Parallel Plate Avalanche Counters (PPACs) which detect the two fission fragments in coincidence and provide their track reconstruction. An adapted analysis procedure has been developed to obtain the relative fission cross sections of the measured actinides.
