Title: Maxwellian cascade model

Abstract

A model for gamma-ray cascade de-excitation of a nucleus derived from the Maxwellian energy distribution function but imposing energy conservation was investigated. Energy distributions and multiplicities and their averages were found over a range of nuclear temperatures and excitation energies appropriate to neutron capture. The model was compared to existing measurements for tantalum, a case where the level density was high and thus a good approximation to the model. 7 refs., 13 figs.
