Abstract

The activation cross sections were measured at six neutron energies from 13.57 and 14.83 MeV for Sm-152(n,p)Pm-152g, Sm-152(n,p)Pm-152m reactions. The production of short-lived activity and the spectra accumulation have been carried out by the cyclic activation method. Statistical model calculations, which the pre-equilibrium emission effects were taken into consideration were also performed (STAPRE code). The cross sections were compared with works in the literature, model calculation results, and evaluation data bases (ENDF/B-VII, JENDL-3.3, JEFF-3.1). (c) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
