Title: Review of experimental capture gamma spectra for neutrons above 10 meV

Abstract

In this section we review the available data on gamma spectra following radiative capture of neutrons above 10 MeV. A few measurements below that energy are included. An important source for references to this topic is the CINDA compilation maintained by the IAEA in cooperation with three other major data centers. An additional useful source is the review article by Weller and Roberson, which treats capture reactions with neutrons, protons, and alpha particles. The following discussion refers only to data that are easily accessible through readily-available journals, reports, or the EXFOR database. Most of the reported measurements were made for the purpose of determining cross sections for discrete states at the high energy end of the gamma spectra which are resolvable or nearly so. In only a few cases have cross sections been measured over a wide range of gamma energies. These measurements are first reviewed below, followed by a review of more detailed measurements such as angular distributions and analyzing powers. Neutron capture on hydrogen isotopes have not been included with the exception of a fairly recent measurement on deuterium; see CINDA for references to this specialized topic.
