Cross-section measurements of neutron-induced reactions on GaAs using monoenergetic beams from 7.5 to 15 MeV

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Cross-section measurements for neutron-induced reactions on GaAs have been carried out at twelve different neutron energies from 7.5 to 15 MeV using the activation technique. The monoenergetic neutron beams were produced via the H2(d,n)He3 reaction. GaAs samples were activated along with Au and Al monitor foils to determine the incident neutron flux. The activities induced by the reaction products were measured using high-resolution γ-ray spectroscopy. Cross sections for five reaction channels, viz., Ga69(n,2n)Ga68, Ga69(n,p)Zn69m, Ga71(n,p)Zn71m, As75(n,2n)As74, and As75(n,p)Ge75, are reported. The results are compared with the previous measurements and available data evaluations. Statistical-model calculations, based on the Hauser-Feshbach formalism, have been carried out using the TALYS and the COH3 codes and are compared with the experimental results. © 2011 American Physical Society.
