The International Reactor Dosimetry and Fusion File (IRDFF-v1.05) is a standardized evaluated cross section library of neutron dosimetry reactions and uncertainty information that supersedes the widely used IRDF-2002 library. The new IRDFF library contains cross section data and related decay data for 79 dosimetry reactions, and absorption data for three cover materials B, Cd and Gd used for suppressing the themal neutron flux in the irradiation of some material samples. All reaction cross section data (except cover materials) include state-of-the-art covariance information.

The library can be used in a broad range of applications from lifetime management and assessments of nuclear power reactors and other neutron metrology applications such as boron neutron capture therapy, therapeutic use of medical isotopes, nuclear physics measurements, and reactor safety applications. Library evaluations are based mainly on comprehensive experimental data, therefore the reaction library also represents an ideal benchmark collection for validation and improvement of theoretical nuclear reaction modelling.
