Abstract. The n-TOF facility at CERN delivers a neutron beam spanning a large energy range, from eV to GeV. This unique feature and the good energy resolution are well suited for fission studies, covering the resonance region, the fission threshold region and the spallation domain. Fission cross section measurements have been carried out for actinides: 233U, 234U, 237Np, 232Th. The results are compared to data libraries and the future prospects are discussed.
