Measurement of the Am241(γ,n)Am240 reaction in the giant dipole resonance region


Journal Article

The photodisintegration cross section of the radioactive nucleus Am 241 has been obtained using activation techniques and monoenergetic γ-ray beams from the HIγS facility. The induced activity of Am 240 produced via the Am241(γ,n) reaction was measured in the energy interval from 9 to 16 MeV utilizing high-resolution γ-ray spectroscopy. The experimental data for the Am241(γ ,n) reaction in the giant dipole resonance energy region are compared with statistical nuclear-model calculations. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
