40Ar(n,p)40Cl reaction cross section between 9 and 15 MeV

Published

Journal Article

The activation technique was used to measure the cross section for the reaction 40Ar(n,p)40Cl in 0.5 MeV energy steps in the neutron energy range between 9 and 15 MeV. These data are important for estimating background contributions in neutrinoless double-beta decay and dark matter searches, as well as in argon-based large neutrino detectors. The data are compared to evaluations and theoretical predictions. © 2012 American Physical Society.
