169 Tm( n, 2n) 168 Tm and 169 Tm (n, 3n) 167 Tm cross-section measurements from 15 to 21 MeV
- Journal Article
The 169Tm(n, 2n) 168Tm and 169Tm(n, 3n) 167Tm cross sections have been measured in the neutron energy range between 15 and 21 MeV using the 3 H(d, n) 4 He neutron source reaction. The 169Tm(n, 3n) 167Tm data are intended to provide an accurate database for interpreting so-called reaction-in-flight neutron yields, which provide a sensitive tool for studying properties of the deuterium-tritium plasma created in inertial confinement fusion laser shots at the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The data are compared to previous data and evaluations for the reaction studied and are found to be in good agreement with the ENDF/B-VIII.0 evaluation, although small adjustments are necessary for the 169Tm(n, 3n) 167Tm reaction. For the first time in any (n, 2n) cross-section measurements to date, a comprehensive data set ranging from threshold to 21 MeV has been obtained by the same group. ©2021 American Physical Society Show more
