The neutron time-of-flight facility n_TOF, operating at CERN since 2001, features a neutron beam that covers the energy range from thermal to 1 GeV. Its most outstanding characteristics are its long flight path (185 m) and the high instantaneous intensity (0.5-12∑106 neutrons/pulse depending on the collimator configuration). The ambitious program carried out in the last decade includes a large number of experiments in the fields of nuclear energy technologies, astrophysics, basic physics, detector development and medical applications. Within the field of nuclear energy technologies most measurements are focused on determining, for the first time and/or with unprecedented accuracies, the capture and fission cross sections of actinides, both at low (resolved resonance region) and high (keV-GeV) neutron energies. This paper present a summary of all the measurements carried out since 2001 at n_TOF, including some details for several of these experiments.
