Abstract

Radiative capture (n,y) cross sections, in addition to their theoretical interest, are of great practical importance to the technology of reactor design. A knowledge of the absolute excitation functions of the various materials employed in reactors permits calculation of the effect of these materials on the reactivity of a reactor, and also enables shielding calculations to be made.
