Abstract

Excitation functions of Ta nuclear reactions were investigated using stacked foil method upto 30 MeV. The cross-sections were determined by the activation method and by applying γ spectroscopy for quantification of the induced radioactivity. It was shown that tantalum is a good stopping material for light charged particles at low energies.
