Double differential cross section is a fundamental value to determine nuclear heating and material damages in structural fusion material research. In this study, double differential light charged particle emission cross sections for Cr-50,Cr-52 target nuclei have been calculated by the TALYS 1.6 code at 14.8 MeV incident neutron energy. Penetrating distance and stopping powers have been calculated for the alpha, deuteron and proton particles, taking into consideration all possible reactions in Cr-50,Cr-52 for incident energies of 0.5-22.2 MeV using GEANT4 calculation code. The compound nucleus formation process dominates the emission of proton and alpha particles. Direct reaction contribution becomes dominant in higher particle emission energies. The calculated double differential cross sections have been compared with the available experimental data taken from the literature.
