Abstract

Energy differential neutron capture cross section measurements have been performed to determine the branching ratio for the 209Bi(n,γ) reaction. The measurements were carried out at the time-of-flight facility GELINA of the IRMM in Geel (Belgium). The capture measurements were performed at a 12 m flight path using three High-Purity Germanium detectors. The experimental set-up was optimized to reduce the prompt background due to scattered neutrons. Several γ-ray spectra corresponding to the 209Bi + n resonances up to 20 keV were deduced. The results of a preliminary data analysis are given in this paper.
