A series of double differential inelastic scattering cross-section measurements were performed on light water at several temperatures and pressures using high resolution time-of-flight inelastic spectrometers, namely the IN4c and the IN6 at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), Grenoble, France to investigate the impact of temperature and pressure on S(q,ω) and thus on the S(α, β) thermal scattering kernel. The present work aims at extending previous measurements with light water at room temperature and pressure to more realistic operating conditions in connection with nuclear power reactors.
