Abstract

The 115In(n,2n)114mIn and 197Au(n,2n)196Au reaction cross sections have been measured relative to the 27Al(n,α)24Na monitor reaction at the two different incident neutron energies of 13.520 ± 0.005 MeV and 14.54 ± 0.24 MeV. The neutrons from the D-T fusion reaction at the Purnima neutron generator were used for activation followed by off-line γ-ray spectrometry. The uncertainty propagation and correlation of measured reaction cross sections were estimated using covariance analysis through considering the partial uncertainties in different attributes. The measured reaction cross sections from the present work have been compared with the literature data from EXFOR compilation, ENDF data of various libraries and theoretically calculated values from the TALYS-1.9 code.
