Abstract

The 110Pd(n,2n)109Pd, 102Pd(n,2n)101Pd, 105Pd(n,p)105Rh and 106Pd(n,p)106mRh reaction cross sections have been measured with respect to the 197Au(n,2n)196Au monitor reaction at the neutron energy of 14.54 ± 0.24 MeV by using the method of activation and off-line γ-ray spectrometry. The mono-energetic neutron beam was generated from the D–T reaction. The uncertainties in the various basic nuclear parameters in the measured reactions and their correlations were estimated by using covariance analysis. The present data were compared with the EXFOR based literature data, evaluated data of various libraries available in national nuclear data center and with the calculated values from TALYS-1.9 code.
