Abstract:

This report describes research on nuclear photodisintegration carried out with the University of Melbourne 35 MeV betatron. It is divided into four sections. The first of these reports on gamma,n cross section measurements which comprise the major part of the work. Photoneutron cross sections are reported for 16O, 9Be, 10B, 11B, 12C, 13C, 45Sc and natural osmium. The motivation for each of these studies is given, as are the results of the measurements. Parts II through IV are briefer, and describe respectively measurements of photoproton energy spectra from the zirconium isotopes, measurements and calculations regarding de-excitation gamma-ray measurements in 19F, 31p, and 39K, and finally the last stages of work on the determination of cross sections for K-shell ionization in nickel, silver and gold.
