Production cross sections of samarium-153 and -145 via alpha-particle-induced reactions on natural neodymium

Appl Radiat Isot. 2022 Jun 25;187:110345. doi: 10.1016/j.apradiso.2022.110345. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTProduction cross sections of 153,145Sm via alpha-particle-induced reactions on natNd were measured up to 23 MeV. The stacked-foil activation technique and high-resolution gamma-ray spectrometry were adopted for the measurement. The obtained cross sections were compared with the literature data and the TENDL-2019 and TENDL-2021 values. Physical thick target yields of the two radionuclides were derived from the measured cross sections.PMID:35779307 | DOI:10.1016/j.apradiso.2022.110345
