Abstract

A method for the determination of partial radiation cross sections based on the energy dispersion of the capture process was undertaken. A description of the experimental reactor facility and details of the method has been presented. Measurements of gamma rays following neutron capture in isotopes of silicon, chromium and nickel revealed resonances which were analyzed for resonance parameters. The characteristics of the resonance decay properties for the different isotopes were discussed.
