Abstract:

The n, alpha reactions induced in germanium by 14 MeV neutrons have been observed in a germanium semiconductor detector. Values of the cross section of the ground-state transition of Ge73n, alphaZn70 at 14.1 and 14.8 MeV are presented along with possible evidence for the existence of excited states of Zn70 at 1.950.1 MeV and at 2.30.1 MeV. Evidence for a reduced response of the detector to the Zn recoil atoms is discussed. Author
