THE NUCLEAR PROPERTIES OF RHENIUM
FLORIDA UNIV GAINESVILLE
Pagination or Media Count:
Slabs of rhenium, iron, and carbon were used as targets for slightly degraded fission neutrons from the UFTR. The gamma rays resulting from neutron interactions within any slab were analyzed with a scintillation spectrometer. Methods by which one can measure the elastic and inelastic scattering cross sections for fission neutrons, as well as determination of the gammaray yield resulting from inelastic scattering, are discussed. A method for separating the gamma-ray response in a NaIT1 crystal from the neutron response in the same crystal is devised on theoretical grounds. Preliminary experimental results indicate such separation is possible. Author
