Abstract

The neutron spectrum from the 55Mn(d, n) 56Fe reaction has been measured at E d = 7 MeV. The level density of 56Fe obtained from neutron evaporation spectrum has been compared to the level density obtained from Oslo-type 57Fe( 3He, αγ) 56Fe experiment. The good agreement supports the recent results including the low-energy enhancement in the γ-strength function for iron isotopes. The new level density function allowed us to investigate an excitation energy dependence of this enhancement, which is shown to increase with increasing excitation energy.
