Abstract

With the aim of providing fundamental cross-section data for deuteron induced gamma ray emission analysis, and eliminate the application of standards from routine analytical work, we measured thin target gamma ray yields of the 6Li(d, pγ)7Li, 9Be(d, nγ)10B, 11B(d, pγ)12B, 16O(d, pγ)17O and 19F(d, pγ)20F nuclear reactions in the 0.6-2 MeV energy range. Fitting adequate functions to the measured values below 1 MeV, we extrapolated the yield curves to the 0-0.6 MeV energy range and then converted the yield data into cross-sections. Values are presented for the most dominant 478 keV (Li), 718 keV (Be), 953 keV and 1674 keV (B), 871 keV (O) and 656 keV (F) gamma lines. The presented cross-section curves facilitate the analysis of thin targets and serve as input parameters for the concentration calculus of thick and intermediate thick samples.
