Isotopic Cross Sections for Production of Gamma Rays Created by Neutron Interactions with {sup 11}B for E{sub n} Between 2 and 22 MeV: Tabulated Data

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Inelastic and nonelastic neutron interactions with {sup 11}B have been studied for incident neutron energies between 2 and 22 MeV. Neutrons from the Oak Ridge Electron Linear Accelerator (ORELA) impinged a sample of natural boron. Gamma rays resulting from neutron interactions were detected using a well-calibrated intrinsic-Ge detection system. Data reduction included compensation for Doppler broadening of the observed peaks and corrections due to incident neutron attenuation, effects due to multiple scattering of neutrons, and sample attenuation of the outgoing gamma rays. Cross sections for gamma rays having energies (in keV) of 2124, 4445, 4741, 5020, 6434, 6743+6793 (combined), and ... continued below
