Abstract:

Measurements of the total cross sections for neutrons interacting with the In and Sm nuclei were carried out on a neutron spectrometer described earlier. The width of the channel was 8 microsec with a 2.23 microsecm resolution for In and 2.5 microsecm resolution for Sm. The In target was in the form of a 60 mgsq cm metallic strip of natural isotopic composition and was investigated over the 0.7-14 ev range. Sm was in the form of a chemical compound with 120 mgsq cm of natural samarium. The article contains a detailed description of the mathematical procedures used for the processing of experimental data. Author
