  • Experimental neutron multiplicities and spectral slope parameters are compared with evaporation calculations for the damped /sup 165/Ho+ /sup 56/Fe reaction as a function of E/sub loss/ for different degrees of energy relaxation of the dinuclear system. These calculations indicate that the popular direct interpretation of the slope parameters in terms of the nuclear temperature of the emitter is poorly justified. Detailed comparisons for two different primary reaction fragment distributions show that the energy partition of the primary fragments is energy-loss dependent and, for small energy losses, far from thermal equilibrium. For E/sub loss/<100 MeV, the ratio E/sub L/(Fe-like)/E/sub H/(Ho-like)>0.5 andmore » for E/sub loss/ = 150 MeV, this ratio is given by A/sub L//A/sub H/.« less
  • Neutron-production spectra from ([ital p],[ital n]) reactions on [sup 204,206,207,208]Pb and [sup 209]Bi measured previously by a Russian group were analyzed to extract numerical values for the level densities of the residual nuclei up to excitation energies of 5--6 MeV with uncertainties of 20--50%. Comparisons with the Gilbert-Cameron form and various parametrizations of the Ignatyuk formulation indicate that the Ignatyuk model with original parameters describes the results well whereas the other forms yield lower level densities. The agreement with the results of the first analysis by the experimenters themselves varies over the range of nuclei considered, being poorest for [supmore » 204,206]Bi.« less
  • The ratio of inclusive spectra of neutrons and protons in antiproton-, pion-, and proton-nucleus interactions at intermediate energies has been considered in the framework of the intranuclear cascade (INC) model. The ratio predicted by the standard INC model is consistent with the experimental data for pion- and proton-induced reactions, but contradicts the ratio obtained in antiproton-nucleus annihilation measurements. It has been shown that for pion-nucleus interactions the {ital n}/{ital p} ratio is much affected by isotopic effects in pion absorption and mainly depends on pion charge. Nevertheless, due to the presence of positive, negative, and neutral pions in antiproton-nucleon annihilationmore » the calculated {ital n}/{ital p} ratio becomes close to the {ital N}/{ital Z} ratio of the target nucleus. The coalescence of nucleons, preequilibrium emission of particles, interaction of annihilation pions with the nuclear Coulomb field, neutron halo effects, and many body annihilation have been considered as possible candidates which would affect the {ital n}/{ital p} ratio in antiproton-nucleus annihilation. A simple quark counting estimation for the {ital n}/{ital p} ratio in many body annihilation has been made.« less
  • The possible reactions and their characterizing data for each stable isotope are surveyed. The table is especially useful in planning neutron-induced experiments using the activation method and in the evaluation of the activity produced. The table includes the reactions (n,p), (n, alpha ), (n,2n), (n, gamma ), (n,d), (n,np), (n,t), (n,He/sup 3/), and (n,n' alpha ). It contains all the stable isotopes of each element and the radioactive ones of long half life (T/sub 1/2/ > 10/aup 6/ years), the residual nuclei produced in the reactions mentioned above, their half life, and the reaction threshold energy. Threshold energy values weremore » calculated. The Q-values were taken from the table of Howerton for the reactions (n,np) and (n,n alpha ), and from the table of Ashby and Catron for the other reactions. (auth)« less
