    • Abstract

       

      Cross-sections of the nuclear reactions27Al(n, p)27Mg,30Si(n, α)27Mg,52Cr(n, p)52V,53Cr(n, p)53V,54Cr(n, p)54V,54Cr(n, α)51Ti and120Sn(n, α)117Cd at 14.7 Mev neutrons were measured using56Fe(n, p)56Mn and27Al(n, α)24Na as monitor reactions. For comparison, theoretical values of the cross-section for these reactions were also obtained through different approaches of compound nucleus theory and computer code Alice. Accuracies achieved in the present measured values of the cross-sections are better than those available in literature.
