Abstract

In the 5.5 MV tandem T11/25 Accelerator Laboratory of NCSR "Demokritos" monoenergetic neutron beams have been used in the energy range 7-11.5 MeV, produced via the 2H(d,n) reaction. The flux variation of the neutron beam is monitored by using a BF3 detector, while an investigation of the energy dependence of the neutron fluence is carried out via the multiple foil activation technique. The 232Th(n, 2n)231Th and 241Am(n,2n)240Am as well as (n,2n), (n,p) and (n,α) reactions on natural Ge and Hf isotopes, have been investigated from threshold up to 11.5 MeV, by using the activation method. The cross section values have been determined relative to the 197Au(n, 2n)196Au, 27Al(n,α)24Na and 93Nb(n,2n) reference reaction cross sections.
