Using a Monte Carlo technique and recent double-differential measurements, a reevaluation of the 9Be(n, 2n) reaction has been completed. This evaluation is currently available for use in the most recent evaluation of the Evaluated Nuclear Data Library and will be used in ENDF/B-VI. Calculations have been carried out with these data, and implications for neutron multiplication in beryllium fusion reactor blankets are discussed.
