Nuclear level densities of ${}^{64,66}$ Zn from neutron evaporation
Double differential cross sections of neutrons from d+ ^{63,65}Cu reactions have been measured at deuteron energies of 6 and 7.5 MeV. The cross sections measured at backward angles have been compared to theoretical calculations in the framework of the statistical HauserFeshbach model. Three different level density models were tested: the Fermigas model, the GilbertCameron model, and the microscopic approach through the HartreeFockBogoliubov method (HFBM). The calculations using the GilbertCameron model are in best agreement with our experimental data. Level densities of the residual nuclei ^{64}Zn and ^{66}Zn have been obtained from statistical neutron evaporation spectra. In conclusion, the angleintegrated cross sections have been analyzed with the exciton model of nuclear reaction.
