(γ, 2n)Reaction crosssection calculations of several eveneven lanthanide nuclei using different level density models
Abstract
There are several level density models that can be used to predict photoneutron cross sections. Some of them are Constant Temperature + Fermi Gas Model (CTFGM), BackShifted Fermi Gas Model (BSFM), Generalized Superfluid Model (GSM), HartreeFockBogoliubov microscopic Model (HFBM). In this study, the theoretical photoneutron cross sections produced by (γ, 2n) reactions for several eveneven lanthanide nuclei such as {sup 140,142}Ce, {sup 142,144,146,148,150}Nd, {sup 144,148,150,152,154}Sm, and {sup 160}Gd have been calculated on the different level density models as mentioned above by using TALYS 1.6 and EMPIRE 3.1 computer codes for incident photon energies up to 30 MeV. The obtained results have been compared with each other and available experimental data existing in the EXFOR database. Generally, at least one level density model crosssection calculations are in agreement with the experimental results for all reactions except {sup 144}Sm(γ, 2n){sup 142}Sm along the incident photon energy, TALYS 1.6 BSFM option for the level density model crosssection calculations can be chosen if the experimental data are not available or are improbable to be produced due to the experimental difficulty.

Fission cross sections in statistical model of fission are calculated using one of important parameter such as transmission coefficients. This parameter calculated using optical model parameter and level density. There are several models of level density that can be used to predict fission cross section. They are Constant Temperature Model, Fermi Gas Model, BackShifted Fermi Gas Model, and Generalized Superfluid Model. In this work, fission cross section would be calculated using two different model of level density, such as Constant Temperature Model Plus Fermi Gas and Generalized Superfluid Model on Th232 (n,f) fission reaction. Calculation result from two different modelmore »

Reaction crosssection calculations using new experimental and theoretical level structure data for deformed nuclei
A technique for modeling level structures of oddodd nuclei has been used to construct sets of discrete states with energies in the range 0 to 1.5 MeV for several nuclei in the rareearth and actinide regions. The accuracy of the modeling technique was determined by comparison with experimental data. Examination was made of what effect the use of these new, more complete sets of discrete states has on the calculation of level densities, total reaction cross sections, and isomer ratios. 9 refs. 
Reaction crosssection calculations using new experimental and theoretical level structure data for deformed nuclei
A technique for modeling quasiparticle excitation energies and rotational parameters in oddodd deformed nuclei has been used to construct sets of discrete states with energy 0 to 1.5 MeV in /sup 176/Lu and /sup 236/Np. These data were used as part of the input for calculation of isomer production crosssection ratios in the /sup 175/Lu(n,..gamma..)/sup 176/Lu and /sup 237/Np(n,2n)/sup 236/Np reactions. In order to achieve agreement with experiment, it has been found necessary to include in the modeled set many rotational bands (35 to 95), which are comprised of hundreds of levels with their gammaray branching ratios. It is essentialmore » 
COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TWOPARAMETER MODELS FOR PREDICTING ROTATIONAL ENERGIES IN EVENEVEN NUCLEI (Nuclear Data Sheets, Section A)
