Importance of ORELA for Developing Nuclear Reaction Models

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Because of its excellent energy resolution, ORELA is particularly well suited for measurements in the resolved resonance region that impact nuclear reaction model calculations. These measurements allow the determination of average level widths, level densities, and cross sections for potential scattering and radiative capture. These quantities can be used to determine parameters in reaction models (such as the optical model and Hauser-Feshbach calculations) and to understand the limitations imposed on these models. Particular attention is given to the importance of improved experimental data to characterize intermediate structure (or doorway states).
