Abstract

Cross-sections were measured at neutron energies from 13.6 to 14.9 MeV for the reactions Ti-46(n,p) Sc-46m, As-75(n,p) Ge-75m and Mo-92(n,2n) Mo-91m leading to short-lived products. Corrections were made for the effects of gamma ray attenuation, coincidence summing, pulse pile-up, dead time, neutron flux fluctuations and scattered low energy neutrons. Statistical model calculations taking into account precompound effects were also performed. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
