Recent Advances in Radiochemical Studies of Low and Intermediate Energy Nuclear Reactions Induced by Light Particles
Radiochemical methods are of considerable significance in studies of low and intermediate energy nuclear reactions induced by light particles, particularly when low-yield and soft-radiation emitting products are involved. A brief description of the pertinent experimental techniques and nuclear model calculational codes is given. The data related to nucleon emission, complex particle emission and formation of isomeric states are reviewed. The nuclear model calculations can reproduce the nucleon emission cross sections fairly well. In the case of isomeric cross sections the calculations demand a careful choice of the input parameters, especially regarding the level structure of the product nucleus. The emission of complex particles is as yet not described well by the theory; the radiochemically determined data serve to develop systematic trends which qualitatively enhance our knowledge on those processes.
