Abstract:

The gamma-ray spectrum above 1 MeV resulting from thermal-neutron capture in aluminum is determined by both a folding and an unfolding analysis of data. This results in a comparison of the relative merits of the two analysis techniques and demonstrates the accuracy that can be obtained in unfolding a complex spectrum. It is concluded that the accuracy of the final photon spectrum is not governed by the technique employed to unfold the measured counts. Author
