Abstract: Resonance parameters for neutron induced reactions in 106,108,110,111,112,113,114,116Cd have been evaluated. The parameters are the result of an analysis of experimental data available in the literature together with a parameter adjustment of transmission and capture data obtained at the time-of-flight facility GELINA. The parameters derived from the GELINA data are in good agreement with those quoted in the literature. From the analysis of the GELINA transmission data a thermal neutron total cross section equal to 2450 plus/minus 40 b has been deduced for natCd at 300 K. This value is in agreement with results of previous measurements which have been performed at thermal reactor beams using different techniques. However, it differs by about 1.5 % from the value 2413 b which was recently deduced from an adjustment to results of an integral experiment. The GELINA transmission and capture data in the low energy region are also not consistent with resonance parameters recommended in evaluated data files. The impact of the resonance parameters obtained in this work on cadmium transmission factors and on the interpretation of an integral experiment is discussed.
