Measurements of Double-Differential Neutron Emission Cross Sections of ^6Li, ^7Li and ^9Be for 11. 5 MeV and 18. 0 MeV Neutrons
Double-differential neutron emission cross sections (DDXs) of <SUP>6</SUP>Li, <SUP>7</SUP>Li and <SUP>9</SUP>Be were measured for 18.0MeV and 11.5MeV incident neutrons produced by the T(d, n) and <SUP>15</SUP>N(d, n) reactions respectively, using the Tohoku University Dynamitron time-of-flight (TOF) spectrometer. The data were obtained at 13 laboratory angles, and angular-differential cross sections (ADXs) of elastic and inelastic scattering neutrons were derived from the DDXs. For 11.5MeV neutrons, we obtained the neutron emission spectra over the secondary neutron energies by newly employing the double TOF method as well as the conventional one. In the measurements at 18.0MeV, we achieved better energy resolution than in our previous studies by using a neutron detector that has a larger solid angle and a thinner tritium target. The experimental results of DDXs and ADXs were compared with our previous results and the evaluated data given in JENDL-3.2, JENDL Fusion File and ENDF/B-VI. It is found that the JENDL data reproduce the experimental ones very well.
