Abstract

By comparison of experimental k0-factors, determined in reactor positions with greatly different thermal-to-epithermal neutron flux ratios, and by comparison of experimentally determined and theoretically calculated k0-factors, it is possible in some cases to select best values from literature data for (n, γ) activation cross-sections and for absolute gamma intensities. This is demonstrated for97Zr,95Zr,56Mn and65Zn.
