Abstract

54Fe and 57Fe are stable iron isotopes, which play an important role in the nucleosynthesis of theslow neutron capture process (s process). In addition, these nuclei are present in many structuralmaterials, and therefore, the knowledge of their neutron capture cross sections is of importance forreactor design studies. This contribution summarizes the results of the (n, γ) cross sections of thesetwo isotopes in the resolved resonance region. The experiment was carried out at the CERN n TOFfacility using the Pulse-Height Weighting Technique in combination with an experimental set-upoptmized for reducing neutron induced backgrounds. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
