A research project entitled "study on accuracy improvement of fast-neutron capture reaction data of long-lived MAs for development of nuclear transmutation systems" is ongoing as a joint collaboration, including Tokyo Tech, Japan Atomic Energy Agency and Kyoto University in Japan. This project focuses on neutron capture reaction of minor actinides 237Np, 241Am and 243Am, in the fast neutron energy region. The final goal of this project is to improve the neutron capture cross sections utilizing
