Abstract

A series of measurements were carried out at the PGAA facilities of the Budapest Research Reactor and at the FRM-II, Garching, Germany, to re-determine the k0 values and the partial gamma-ray production cross-sections of prompt gamma lines for 19 elements. Different stoichiometric compounds and water solutions were irradiated in cold neutron beams. The new values are compared with the old ones measured at the Budapest facility and others in the literature.
